    PM must quit if he cannot hold CA polls: Nepal

     -  Kantipur

     Dec 21 2007 - CPN-UML leader Madhav Kumar Nepal Thursday said that the Prime Minister must quit if he cannot hold the Constituent Assembly elections within mid-April.

    Reminding that it was Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala’s primary responsibility to hold the polls, he said that PM Koirala cannot shy away from the responsibility blaming other political parties for his failure to hold the CA polls.

    Talking to media persons upon his arrival at the Tribhuwan International Airport after attending the 8th general convention of the CPI (Marxist and Leninist) held in Kolkata, West Bengal today, Nepal reiterated that this was the last chance to the PM to hold the polls.

    “The PM must clearly tell if he can hold elections or not,” Nepal said, “If he can, then he can stay (as the head of the government).”

    “If the PM is ready to accept the challenge and confident that he can hold the elections, then this could be the third chance for the PM,” he added.

    He also said that the current political deadlock was due to the lack of required trust among the political parties themselves.

    He said that the issue of the fully proportional electoral system could be resolved through other means if the Maoists demand of round table conference to resolve the issue was not possible.

    Lauding the agreement reached among the seven party agreement to hold the elections within Chaitra, however, he warned that the seven parties must realise that if the CA polls are not held within Chaitra (mid-April), then there would be a grave crisis in the country.
