HLPC to wait for two more days for poll-opposing parties to join election fray
The four-party led High Level Political Committee (HLPC) has given a two-day ultimatum to the poll-opposing 33-party alliance led by CPN-M to come to an understanding and join the election fray.
A meeting of the HLPC held at New Baneshwor on Monday decided to show “maximum flexibility” on the talks with the poll-opposing parties so as to meet their legitimate demands - amendment of the 11-point and 25-point agreements and increasing the Proportional Representation seats in the Constituent Assembly.
However, if the latter still remains adamant on their demand for dissolution of the current election government and canceling the upcoming CA election then the HLPC would hold no further talks with the poll-opposing parties, UCPN (M) leader Narayan Kazi Shrestha said.
The meeting also decided to hold ‘decisive talks with 33-party alliance led by CPN-M, MJF-Nepal and Federal Socialist Party on Tuesday itself.
Thereafter, the major parties – NC, UCPN (M), CPN (UML) and UDMF – that lead the HLPCwill engage in election-centric programs from Wednesday, Shrestha said.
Similarly, the meeting also drew the attention of the government towards the formation of Truth and Reconciliation Commission to resolve the conflict-era related cases. Nepalnews.com
