No change in elec­tion date

Southasia - - BRIEFING -

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.
