In an appeal today, the President of major ruling party spoke the need of defeating anti-constitutional and anti-democratic forces by the election and further consolidating the base of democracy.
As the leader insists, it is the high time to take significant efforts for promoting the federal democratic republic system in the country, for protecting the Constitution and for safeguarding the democracy by conquering efforts to weaken democracy and the Constitution.
Through the appeal, the NC President said the party mechanism from the province to local levels have been instructed to implement the decision of government coalition partners to forge an electoral alliance for the May 13 local elections. It may be noted that five ruling parties NC, CPN (Maoist Center), CPN (Unified Socialist), Janata Samajbadi Party Nepal and Rastriya Janamorcha have already agreed to have an electoral alliance as per the local need in the election.
President Deuba requested all members of the party to be active in a campaign to make party's authorized candidates as well as alliance candidates victorious, appealing the candidates of the NC, who have filed rebel candidacies, to withdraw their candidacy within the slated time.
The NC President mentioned that voters across the nation are very excited and active in electing representatives at local levels and handing over the leadership of local-level government for next five years.
As he said, the entire party hierarchy is doing their best to win the people’s mandate through the election and make democratic candidates successful.
