MAR 17 – Foreign Department Chief of CPN-Maoist, CP Gajurel,has said that his party’s attention has been drawn towards the support extended by the embassies of friend nations towards the formation of an interim electoral Cabinet under the leadership of chief justice. “The recent 25-point and 11-point agreements signed between the major political parties was not a political pact but a deal between the prominent leaders of the UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (MJF),” the party said in a press statement issued on Sunday.
“All the other parties have strong objection to the agreement.” The CPN-Maoist argued that the leaders of big three political parties and Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha unconstitutionally scrapped the 24 articles of the interim constitution by amending them in an unauthorised manner. The party has appealed to the friend nations and their representatives to reconsider their support for the move that was against Nepal and Nepali.
Nepal: Poll conduct unlikely says Chairman Mohan Baidya
The Chairman of Nepal Communist Party-Maoist, Mohan Baidya Kiran has ruled out any possibility of the election conduct under the government headed by Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi. The act of the four political parties to give a shape to the Interim Council of Ministers for Elections is an even more regressive and reactionary act, he claimed while addressing a program in Kathmandu, March 16, 2013.
He also threatened to forcefully object to the formation of the election government headed by Chief Justice. When asked if his party will take part or reject the election held by the election government replied Baidya, “Let us not hold any debate over the election that is unlikely under any circumstances.” What makes him so sure? “What I have failed to understand is the stance taken by the Nepali Congress. The NC considers itself as the messiah of democratic norms and principles.
What was the NC doing when the conspiracy to bring an end to the system of multiparty democracy was being hatched? It rather supported the move. A mild pinch to the Nepali Congress. Let us not talk of Prachanda and Baburam because they have already surrendered the achievements of the peoples’ revolt. ” Baidya also claimed that the so-called four parties have imposed a fascist and party less system in the country. In the meantime, the cadres of Baidya led Maoist party burnt the effigies of President Ram Baran Yadav and Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi in Kathmandu.
