KATHMANDU: The four major political forces failed to forge an agreement on the revival of the Constituent Assembly on Wednesday.
After a joint meeting of the top leaders of UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and United Democratic Madhesi Front, CPN-UML Chairman Jhala Nath Khanal said that the chances of promulgation of new constitution by reviving the dissolved CA have ended as the parties failed to build an agreement on the content of constitution.
Saying the country will now have to opt for the fresh elections, the former prime minister added taht the course and time for the polls will be decided by holding further discussion in the days coming.
The parties had sat together at the New Baneshwor-based Secretariat of the Special Committee for army integration in a bid to explore how the existing political and constitutional crisis can be resolved.
The CPN-UML chairman was the first leader to come outside the meeting hall, while the others are still holding talks inside.
