CA elections not possible if consensus not reached by July 22: Upreti

KATHMANDU: Acting Chief Election Commissioner, Nilkantha Upreti has pointed out the need for a political consensus in order to hold elections to the Constituent Assembly (CA) announced by the Government for November 22.

He said the CA elections was possible in November 22 only based on a political consensus and removal of the legal and constitutional obstructions before July 22.

In interaction with journalists in Tansen, Palpa on Wednesday, Mr Upreti said the Election Commission requires 120 days to hold the elections, and for that the Government should give the Commission the legal way forward by July 22.

“Otherwise only local elections was possible”, he said.

The Acting CEC also said that the use of electronic voting system would ease the upcoming elections. RSS
