BHAKTAPUR: Nepal Workers and Peasants Party (NWPP) Chairman Narayan Man Bijukchhe on Friday doubted the ability of the Interim Election Council (IEC) led by Khil Raj Regmi in holding purported fresh election to the Constituent Assembly.
Inaugurating a function of the party’s sister wing in Bhaktapur, leader Bijukchhe charged the IEC of being an emblem of the major four political parties.
“The IEC does not bear any capacity as it is only the tail of the major four parties,” Bijukchhe said urging all not to expect new CA elections and changes from the present government.
Bijukchhe went on to say that the IEC and the cross party mechanism of the big four parties—the High Level Political Mechanism— do not have any rights to amend the Interim Constitution.
Referring to the one per cent threshold of the Election Commission, Bijukchhe termed the threshold unconstitutional saying his party is against it.
He asked the IEC to be focused on meeting the fundamental needs of the people rather than aspiring for the big changes.
Stating that the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML had imposed dual party despotism in the erstwhile governments, leader Bijukchhe claimed that conspiracy is being hatched to impose four-party autocracy putting in the Maoist and Madhesi parties further apart.
Indian nationals have been issued Nepali citizenship of late, Bijukchhe claimed urging all to oppose the provision of the by birth citizenship agreed to by the big four parties citing it may derail the national freedom and dignity.
