‘Elections have laid ground for statute implementation’

Chitwan, December 7

CPN-Maoist Centre Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal today said that the ongoing provincial and parliamentary was not a continuation of past elections in Nepal.

Talking to journalists after casting his ballot at Aadharbhut Primary School polling centre of Bhimsennagar in Bharatpur Metropolitan City, Chitwan today morning, Dahal said the election was held after huge political change in the country. “This is the first of its kind election that the country is witnessing. Everybody should take it as a great occasion in the history of Nepali politics. This election is a moment for institutionalising all the past achievements gained from struggles and sacrifices,” he said.

“The second phase of provincial and parliamentary elections today marks the end of one political era and beginning of a new one,” said Dahal. He said the country and people witnessed this moment only because of huge sacrifices and struggles. “It is not a political journey that has begun, it is a journey of development and political stability. This election is the ground for the country’s political stability. No government survived its full term of five years in the past several years. Hence, development activities could not take place because of unstable government,” said Dahal.

He was confident that the left alliance would form the government with clear majority in the polls and that it would lead the country towards development, prosperity and sustainability. He expressed happiness and satisfaction at casting his ballot from his own hometown. “I am very happy to begin the country’s stability and prosperity from my own hometown in the capacity of a leading political figure of the country,” said Dahal.

Dahal said the election proved that the federal democratic republican constitution of the country was being implemented in the country. “Both the left and democratic alliances showed positive signs regarding the country’s future. “When there are two major alliances in the country, the alliance does good for the country and people forms the government and lasts for five years whereas another stays in the opposition,” said Dahal.

Dahal affirmed that the CPN-MC and CPN-UML would go for party unification soon after the elections. “This unification is not against anybody or force, but undoubtedly it is for the nation and people. I wish Nepali Congress also proceeds with party unification with democratic forces,” said Dahal.
