The meeting of top leaders of four parties has ended inconclusively. At a time when Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) has been demanding the constitution amendment prior to the election process, Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba called up leaders of Nepali Congress, CPN-UML, CPN (Maoist Center) and Madhesi People's Right Forum- Democratic (MPRF-D) for the meeting.
While emerging out from the meeting, Nepali Congress leader Ram Chandra Poudel said that the meeting is focused on to convince Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) in the upcoming second phase of local level elections instead of postponing the elections.
Talking with the media persons after the meeting, CPN-UML chairperson KP Sharma Oli claimed that the government has indirectly proposed to postpone the second phase of the election for the fourth time.
Reiterating the party’s stand, CPN-UML, however, has rejected the proposal, said Oli. Chair Oli added that the ruling coalition is not confident about holding the election on slated date June 28.
However, the demand of RJPN for the amendment of the constitution is not possible before the election, said Pun, adding that the four parties will consider the other technical demands of RJPN to ensure their involvement in the election.
Prime Minister Deuba called the meeting of the top leaders to discuss about the recent political situation after the RJPN decided to boycott and disrupt the second phase of the local level election.
