Electoral alliance with UML forged for party unification: DahalCPN (Maoist Center) Chairman reiterated that electoral alliance with the CPN-UML was forged for the left parties’ unification.
CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman reiterated that electoral alliance with the CPN-UML was forged for the left parties’ unification.
Speaking at a press conference organised in Chitwan on Monday, Dahal said the party unification would not be effected under any circumstances.
“Electoral alliance was formed with an objective of party unification,” he said, adding,” Election results will not affect it.”
Recalling that many fringe parties have unified after the 1989 movement, he said that the party unification has moved ahead with the formation of party unification committee.
“Constitution and law states that there should be fewer parties,” said Dahal, “We have initiated to make less big parties than too many small parties,” adding that Nepali Congress (NC) had also formed an alliance.
Saying that the left parties’ unification process is going on with the inclusion of new features, the former Prime Minister recounted that NC and UML had also forged electoral alliance in many districts during the local level elections.
Dahal further made it clear that his party has not severed ties and coordination with NC.
Meanwhile, the CPN (MC) Chairman said that the alliance is having a tough time in picking candidates for the upcoming parliamentary and provincial elections slated for November 26 and December 7 all due to lack of time.
“It is not because of toughness, but due to lack of time,” he said, adding, “I and Oli are holding a meeting this evening. The candidates’ selection issue will be resolved today itself.”
Moreover, the Maoist Centre Chairman said that issue of ballot papers has also been ironed out after the Election Commission decided to print two ballot papers for the upcoming elections.
Dahal, who had won the first Constituent Assembly election from Rolpa and Kathmandu and second Constituent Assembly election from Siraha, has chosen Chitwan for the upcoming parliamentary election.
Claiming that he would emerge victorious in the election by winning the heart of Chitwan’s people, he said that the Bandarmude incident will not affect his victory.
Thirty five members of the general public and three Nepal Army personnel were killed when the then underground Maoists ambushed a bus at Badarmudhe in Madi of Chitawan district on June 6, 2005.
