Kathmandu: Parties in the ruling alliance have voiced their adherence to mutual cooperation in the upcoming local-level elections slated for May 13.
Issuing a joint appeal on Monday, they tried to address growing differences at the local levels regarding the electoral alliance.
“We commit to constantly support each other by leaving aside differences. The parties in the alliance are determined to achieve development and prosperity by assuring justice and equality in society,” reads the appeal.
Leaders and cadres of the five parties have been called upon to move ahead with the spirit of mutual cooperation by coordinating in the elections.
Stating that the five-party coalition was formed to safeguard the country and democracy from the anti-change and regressive ill-intention, the top leaders argued that this solidarity is for the protection of the socialism based on democracy and democratic norms and values in Nepal, and for removing the difficulties faced by the people while promoting Nepal’s sovereignty, independence, people’s freedom and progress.
Prime Minister and Nepali Congress president Sher Bahadur Deuba, CPN(Maoist Centre) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’, CPN (Unified Socialist) honorable leader Jhalanath Khanal, the Janata Samajbadi Party’s senior leader Ashok Kumar Rai and Rastriya Janamorcha vice-chairperson Durga Poudel have signed on the joint appeal.
