KATHMANDU: Prime minister Girija Prasad Koirala may not contest the crucial November constituent assembly elections that will form a body to frame a constitution and decided the fate of the 238-year old monarchy, a senior member of the Nepali Congress has said.
Shekhar Koirala, Nepali Congress central committee member, said PM Koirala is unlikely to contest the constituent assembly elections on November 22. Though the Morang and Sunsari chapters of Nepali Congress have urged the PM to be their candidate, there are chances that he will not file his candidacy, Shekhar said at an election programme.
Supporting the idea, Shekhar said, "As the party should be led by youths, PM Koirala should not file his nomination papers," for the polls stating that the legitimacy of the government will be under threat if the polls were not held on time.

Finally, the long wait over the two NCs unification appears to have come to an end.“The very draft paper that has the entire details for such unification is already in place”, said an insider of the NC from the Koirala camp.

Sources close to the Nepali Congress-Democratic said that the unity efforts would get a last boost by the two heads of the NCs right this evening hopefully.

According to reports leaking from high placed NC quarters say that the NC’s Student and the Female wing will be headed by the Koirala congress. The Tarun Dal will go to the pockets of the NC-D, it is learnt.2007-09-23 16:34:54
