Leader Nepal insists on leftist alliance


CHITWAN, Sept 26: CPN-UML leader Madhav Kumar Nepal has insisted on the need of an alliance among the leftists in the upcoming elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies.

Speaking at a press meet organized by Press Chautari Nepal, Chitwan chapter on Tuesday, he said there seemed no possibility of a single party garnering majority in the elections so as to run the government that’s why an electoral alliance among the leftist parties was necessary.

The former Prime Minister said the UML was ready for the leftists’ alliance if the CPN (Maoist Center) was positive for so.

He took the time to make clear the party ‘policy’ of going alone in the election if there was an electoral alliance between the Nepali Congress and CPN (MC).

On a different note that leader Nepal said he would compete either from Kathmandu or Rautahat in the upcoming election.

Giving his reaction about the party’s position in the recently held third phase of local level election in Province no. 2, he argued the party presence was not pessimistic in overall, pledging to take the party ahead making corrections of weaknesses of the local poll. RSS
