"CJ-led govt option ends if polls can't be held in June"
KATHMANDU, March 3: UCPN (Maoist) spokesman Agni Prasad Sapkota has alleged that opposition parties including the Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML are against new elections. Talking to media persons at the UCPN (Maoist) head office in Parisdanda on Sunday said the ongoing activities of the opposition parties show that they are unwilling to face election.
"Nepali Congress and CPN-UML just want the ouster of the current government, so they are organizing . So, they are holding functions outside the capital," said Sapkota.
He also claimed that the elections can be held in mid-June. According to him, former commissioners of the Election Commission have said that elections can be held if the political parties are able to reach consensus by coming Friday.
"We can hold elections by reinstating the former commissioners to the Election Commission through political consensus," added Sapkota.
He said those opposing the formation of the chief justice-led government are in fact against ending the political deadlock. According to him, the environment for new elections is in the making.
"First of all the parties should resolve the difficulties of the constitution for election," said Sapkota informing that the country will be in more crisis if the difficulties are not resolved.
"If the possibility of holding elections in mid-June ends then the process of forming the chief justice-led government will be stopped," added Sapkota.
Meanwhile, Sapkota said his party will move ahead by forging working alliance with Mohan Baidya´s CPN-Maoist.
