Leftist alliance need of an hour: Leader Bhusal

KATHMANDU: The CPN-Maoist Centre Spokesperson Pampha Bhusal has clarified that the formation of the broader leftist alliance was an need of an hour in the country.

Speaking at an interaction programme in Bhakatpur on Friday, leader Bhusal said it was not formed under the instruction of external forces.

"Holding parliamentary and provincial elections are top priority of the incumbent government, so, we won't quit the PM Deuba-led government until elections are successfully held in the country," Bhusal added.

Former General Administration Minister Bhusal said parties incorporated under the leftist alliance can take their own election symbols to contest in the upcoming polls.

She said there was no dispute for positions inside the alliance like the rumours that have been spread, but discussion was underway regarding selection of candidates and distribution of seats.

Bhusal also claimed that the broader leftist alliance would garner two-third majority in the upcoming elections to strive nations for stable government and economic prosperity in the nation.

With two-third majority in the polls, leftist alliance would establish directly elected executive in the nation.
