POKHARA: Leader of the Nepali Congress (NC), Arjun Narsingh KC, has said that new elections of the Constituent Assembly (CA) announced by the government for November 22 without consensus and in unconstitutional manner will in no way be held and the NC would not participate in the elections.
At a press meet organised by the Nepal Press Union, Kaski, in Pokhara today, KC said that there was no provision of elections of the next CA in the Interim Constitution of Nepal.
He said that the NC would not participate in the elections announced unilaterally by the government until constitutional and legal difficulties are removed.
The NC leader expressed the view that there would be referendum on single ethnic state or common-state together with elections of the CA or Parliament by removing legal difficulties.
Stating that no electoral environment would be created unless the government led by Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai exits, KC said that NC had agreed on bringing a one-third budget by the caretaker government as the country should not be kept in vacuum making the country without a budget.
