Kathmandu, Sept. 24 (ANI): The Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (UCPN-M) and the Communist Party Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) have requested House Speaker Subas Nemwang to play an active role to end the “meaningless” prime ministerial election.

According to a Kathmandu Post report, the UCPN-M and CPN-UML wrote separately to Nemwang.

“Chiefs of the both parties (UCPN-M and CPN-UML) informed me about their earlier decision to go for new consensus course but I told them to convince the Nepali Congress to withdraw its candidacy before starting a new process,” Nemwang told reporters after receiving the letters from the parties.

The Speaker argued that there is no other way but to continue with the election unless one of the contestants wins a majority vote in the House or both candidates agree to pull out of the poll process. (ANI)
