CA polls impossible in June, UML top brass Khanal reiterates

CPN UML Chairman Jhalnath Khanal

KATHMANDU: CPN (UML) Chairman Jhalanath Khanal has ruled out the possibilities of the CA polls in June and claimed that November was the best time for holding the CA polls. He however managed time to say that the UML was for holding CA polls in June.

It was not possible to hold fresh polls in June and the CA polls should be held in November as per the four-party consensus. The  UML was for election as early as but holding election was not possible without preparations, Khanal said at a program organized to mark the 34th Memorial Day of Martyr Ratna Kumar Bantawa.

Khanal said that the UML would foil the Maoist party’s dream to bring thirds majority in the CA polls by misusing administrative mechanism that was set by the party’s outgoing government.
