Parliament automatically reinstates if no timely elections: Prachanda


Kathmandu, Oct. 26: CPN (Maoist Centre) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has said the Legislature-Parliament will automatically be restored if the elections to the House of Representatives and State Assembly were not held in the stipulated time.
The Maoist Centre chair and former Prime Minister said this while addressing a book launching programme here on Thursday. On the occasion, he launched the book entitled ' History of Modern Nepal (1743 BS -1955 BS) authored by Laxman Panta.
Prachanda said although constitutionally the term of the parliament is until January 21, 2018 it has been dissolved as the process for the nomination of candidates for the House of Representatives and State Assembly elections have started. He however added that the parliament would be automatically reinstated if the elections were not held on the stipulated dates of November 26 and December 7 this year.
The Maoist Centre chairman also said that the Leftist Alliance will make its views on this topic public today alone.
"The regressive elements who do not want the progressive and the pro-change forces coming together might disturb the election process; we all need to be conscious towards this possibility," he said.
Prachanda also urged one and all not to cast doubts regarding this (i.e. the elections not taking place on the stipulated date) as the Election Commission has started the process of printing separate ballot papers for the same seat of the House of Representatives and State Assembly, in agreement with the top leaders of the major political parties, including Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba.
CPN (UML) secretary Pradip Gyawali said that Panta has written the book following the socialist and the progressive concepts in history writing.
Chief Editor of Kantipur national daily, Sudhir Sharma said the rightist and leftist both perspectives on seeing history would be wrong.
The 558 pages book is based on the analysis of key incidents of the period from 1743 BS to 1955 BS in Nepal's history. RSS
