Former Prime Minister and CPN (Maoist Centre) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the decision to forge an electoral alliance among the five-party alliance in the upcoming local level elections rests with the Nepali Congress.

Talking to media at Janakpur Airport today, the former Prime Minister and Chair of the government coalition partner, said, “ So far the five-party alliance have no differing issues and proposals are afloat for forging the electoral alliance, but the final decision is in the hands of the Nepali Congress.”

 He was here to address the Province-level political orientation of the party.

According to him, the party wished to continue with the existing alliance till the elections, but NC role is vital in determining the future course as remarks in different tone are coming from the NC itself. “If NC declined the idea of electoral alliance, we will face the election on our own strength.”

Stating that there were no talks within the five-party alliance in regard with incorporating the Loktantrik Samajbadi, he said however the Prime Minister and the party were in touch for the matter. He went on to say, “Talks are underway among the government coalition partners to reshuffle the Council of Ministers. But the formal decision is awaited”, the leader said hinting at the possibility of entry of some new faces as well.

As he said, next session of the House of Representatives is expected to endorse the citizenship bill and the bill to operate railway service.
