No change in election date
Former Nepalese Prime Minister Madhav Kumar claimed that the government cannot be changed immediately as demanded by the disgruntled parties.
He said that there is no provision of forming a new government at the moment. Hence, the current government would persist until the Constituent Assembly (CA) election.
Talks could be held among the major parties and the disgruntled parties. However, he clarified that the date for the CA election (November 19) and the current interim election would not change by any means.
Kumar further said that the poll-opposing parties have demanded the resignation of the Chief Justice in the 11-point and 25-point pact. The former Prime Minister was of the opinion that the parties should be clear on the mechanism even if Khil Raj Regmi resigns as the Chief Justice. Claiming that the major parties would come to an agreement with the disgruntled parties, he said that baseless anti-election statements would not be entertained.
