Kathmandu: Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has criticized the Election Commission for not making a decision on the legitimacy of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP). He fears that the commission may not want to hold the election.
Addressing a rally in Bhairahawa against the dissolution of the House of Representatives, Deuba said that he would not be asked to do the same in the case pending in the court. He said his party had different views on the issue and would have to wait for a court decision.
He criticized the Election Commission for not deciding on the legitimacy of the NCP. Stating that the election should be held within six months of the dissolution of the House of Representatives, Deuba said, “The Election Commission does not care. I would like to say to this Election Commission from here that the election should be held within six months of the dissolution of the Parliament by Prime Minister Oli.
He had earlier said, “Oli has said that he will hold elections by April. Why doesn’t the Election Commission say? It’s time to dump her and move on. “
He said he did not have to wait for a court decision to prepare for the election. “If the court decides not to hold the election, the (preparation) has been stopped,” he said.
He also criticized the commission for not deciding on the NCP dispute. Congress president Deuba said earlier, ‘Why not publish the term? There is a fight over the election symbol, why doesn’t the Election Commission give the election symbol? ‘
Saying that the election symbol of Surya remained the same, he urged to make a quick decision whether to give it to Prachanda or Oli. He fears that Oli will not hold the election if he does not get the sun sign.
