27 Dec, Kathmandu: CPN (UML) Chair and former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said the government should immediately announce the date for elections as constitution amendment and elections were not related.
Talking to journalists at the party central office, Dhumbarahi, Kathmandu today, Chair Oli reiterated on holding three-tier of elections as per the constitutional provision.
He added that the party has been obstructing the parliament as the constitution amendment bill was registered against the constitutional provision.
To a query of journalists on the prospects of the UML’s participation in a new government for elections, chair Oli clarified that the incumbent government had only the tenure of four months, adding that it depends on the situation then.
In another context, he expressed confidence that the impeachment motion against the suspended CIAA chief would be passed but the constitution amendment bill will fail.
Similarly, party secretary Yogesh Bhattarai urged the government to be flexible to end political deadlock caused by the constitution amendment bill.
Reporters’ Club delegation had reached the party office to submit a memorandum to Chair Oli urging to end current political deadlock. RSS
