Deputy Prime Minister Ishwor Pokhrel has said all quarters related to the election have geared up for the election. Talking to media at Bharatpur Airport today, the Deputy Prime Minister has said the Election Commission and security bodies were preparing for the election and the Finance Ministry had already allocated budget for the same.
He expressed his belief that there was no doubt that the election to the House of Representatives would be held on time. The Deputy Prime Minister went on to say that it was not necessary for those who had trust on democracy and wished to move ahead with the fresh people's mandate to oppose the election. As he spoke, despite differing views over the new election at present, ultimately all political parties would participate in it.
On a different note, Nepal Communist Party (NCP) member said the Election Commission would take party unification provisions into consideration while finalising the party authentication issue.
According to him, the case relating to the House of Representatives will be settled by the Supreme Court. He promised that the government would allow the EC and SC to work independently in regard with the matter. ''The government will give no pressure and all works will go as per the procedures.''
