Four parties urge govt to announce poll date tomorrow

KATHMANDU: The four-party mechanism formed to advise the government on holding fresh elections has suggested that the Cabinet declare the exact date for fresh CA polls tomorrow.

High-level political mechanism head Pushpa Kamal Dahal, who called on Election Council Chairman Khil Raj Regmi at his office in Singha Durbar, said that he also formally informed the government of the formation of the mechanism.

“We have urged the government to declare election date tomorrow,” Dahal told mediapersons after the meeting.

The four major political parties formed an 8-member high-level political committee under the leadership of UCPN (Maoist) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Saturday.

The panel, which will be chaired by the top leaders of the four parties on rotational basis every month, comprises top leaders and one more representative from each party.

The main job of the panel will be to advise the interim election government and make recommendations for appointments of the remaining cabinet members and the office-bearers in the Election Commission and other constitutional bodies, leaders have said.
