Troubled Waters

INUNDATED: Locals of Darchula watch from the rooftops as the flooded Mahakali river threatened to wreak more havoc on Thursday morning.

After the four parties ran out of excuses for dilly dallying, they gave the CJ-led government the green signal and on 14 June, the cabinet set 19 November as the date for elections. While there are other technical and logistical hurdles, by far the most worrying aspect is the opposition to polls from the CPN-M, the Madhes Front led by Upendra Yadav and the newly-formed Federal Socialist Party led by Ashok Rai. But none of their demands look so inscrutable that they can’t be resolved through dialogue and we see no compelling reason now not to have elections in November.

To get the ball rolling, the Election Commission announced a timetable this week. Let’s hope our leaders leave behind their bad habit of missing deadlines this time round.
