KATHMANDU: Chairman of Nepal’s Interim Election Council of Ministers Khil Raj Regmi said he did not take responsibility of holding the CA elections on June 21.

After submitting a seven-point memorandum to Chairman Regmi, Chairman of Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal Chairman Kamal Thapa quoted Regmi as saying, “I did not take responsibility of leading new government to hold CA polls in June. I have pledged to hold polls by mid-November,”

According to Thapa, Regmi also pledged to hold elections in a free and fair manner by escaping the influence of four major political parties.

On the occasion, the RPP-Nepal leaders submitted the seven-point memorandum asking to declare the polls date immediately and scrap four-party high-level political committee among others.
