Local elections must be held on time

2022 Jan 30, 12:09,

Lawyers have demanded that the government and the Election Commission hold local elections on time. Speaking at an interaction program on 'Constitutional and Legal System of Local Level Elections' organized by Press Chautari Nepal in the capital on Saturday, Senior Advocate Tikaram Bhattarai said that the people's representatives would not exist if local level elections were not held on the scheduled date.

"The constitution stipulates a five-year term with separate existence for federal, state and local governments. It also states that the term of the local level cannot be extended. Therefore, the election should be held on time. ”

Another senior advocate, Sunil Pokharel, said that raising Article 225, which is not related to the term of the local government, is an attempt to create a situation after 2054 BS. "The term of the local level has been fixed at five years in the constitution considering the situation where the local level has been without people's representatives for the last 20 years. The local level is not a post like the Prime Minister and the Speaker, they cannot be made officiating, "he said.
