All three tiers of elections will be held within a year : PM
KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that all three levels of elections will be held within the next year.
Addressing the nation on Friday, the Prime Minister said that the government has already started preparations to hold the elections. “The government has the responsibility to hold all three levels of elections within one year. I urged all the concerned authorities to make preparations for the elections,” the Prime Minister said.
He said that the government has been holding discussions with all the political parties to end the House obstruction.
The UML has been obstructing the House proceedings since the very first meeting of the ongoing session questioning the role of Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota after he expressed his reluctance to remove 14 lawmakers of the party’s dissident Madhav Nepal faction from their positions.
