Jhalnath Khanal, the ‘revered chief’ of the CPN United Socialist Party, is returning to Kathmandu after boycotting the vote depend amid the electoral defeat of Ilam 1.

He has raised severe questions in regards to the energy alliance, Congress, Election Commission and many others. A short cellphone dialog with Khanal by Online Khabar’s Basant Basnet:

Why did you oppose the vote counting course of?

Mysterious and fraudulent actions occurred from the start within the calculation of Elam 1. The counting officer has made 32 containers of various municipalities to be opened directly. That was unscientific. I looked for the rationale why they did this. Five hundred votes disappeared.

After that, when it grew to become clear that there was an irregularity, it grew to become recognized that there was a weak point within the counting course of. The methodology is unethical, the employees was additionally suspicious. Even although all of the figures are right, how did the vote disappear? We have mentioned that we’ll not take part within the calculation till we get the reply.

Wasn’t the matter settled after the all-party assembly occurred?

In that assembly, we requested why the irregularity occurred. The individuals of UML have been additionally shocked. No one might reply. I spoke to the Election Commission and anxious officers. They began saying that some votes could have disappeared right here, however that vote could also be in one other field. How can a vote solid in a single field be present in one other field? Do such a factor? I maintained that it was not an irregularity in itself. In spite of this, if the calculation is to proceed, I mentioned that we don’t agree on the method.

What did you say to the Election Commission?

I talked about this rip-off. The Commission additionally couldn’t give any reply. When counting the following sales space, the employees modified. Even although they’ve began counting the wards, they’ve already accomplished the work. 366 extra votes have been seen. When I put this, they are saying, the variety of votes within the field is legitimate. I left myself saying that this was an irregularity, a fraud.

What do you do now?

I’ll go to court docket now. I’ll hold my level there.

Why do you doubt the Election Commission?

It solely did mechanical and technical issues, which I didn’t perceive.

Isn’t the job of the Election Commission solely to do technical work?

No, after the dispute, it must also discover a political answer. Only then will the Commission proceed. The coalition assembly has additionally demanded that there needs to be a re-voting. The fee didn’t take note of it. I additionally talked about this within the press convention.

You are within the energy coalition. Can it’s mentioned that it was rigged by the federal government?

Why not? The authorities will solely organize technical facets together with peace and safety. There isn’t any risk of fraud by the federal government. The remainder of the work was finished by the Election Commission. The authorities doesn’t even know what occurred within the cubicles of Elam. While understanding whether or not it was misled or not, a lot of the cubicles have UML settings. It has been rigged because the sales space. This is evident.

How to know dropping by virtually 3 thousand? Is the mandate in your favor?

This irregularity is an element. Another issue is the suicidal and irresponsible components of the mob and vampire tendencies throughout the Four Alliance element. He intervened.

Did you inform Congress?

There are such insiders within the Congress. One aspect helped from begin to end. Thank you very a lot. But the opposite part was in battle. It was seen within the voting. Despite that setback, we have been transferring ahead. But it was not sufficient. Because there’s a hole of 2000 when there’s a distinction of 1000 votes.

Isn’t it seen that the chief who has turn into the previous prime minister and the chief of the occasion can not settle for defeat?

I thank the voters of Ilam 1, all of the residents. He could lose the election. Losing does not matter to an individual like me. It’s simply that you could’t stand and communicate in Parliament. None of those outcomes will have an effect on my political place.

Did you congratulate the successful candidate?

My congratulations to Mahesh Basnet. Let him win. But the election course of have to be lawful and lawful. There shouldn’t be any fraudulent conspiracy irregularity in it. Who will disappear the votes solid by the individuals within the field? Who solid the votes that the individuals didn’t solid? The solely query is that this.

Did you name and congratulate Mahesh Basnet?

I’m on my approach now. I’ll give it some thought after reaching Kathmandu.

But there’s additionally a risk that you’ll not congratulate?

Yes, that can be a risk. Because I questioned the method and walked away. After the choice of the court docket, a choice might be made about congratulating.

Will there be cooperation with Congress now?

One aspect of Elam is in favor of democracy and structure. The different aspect has rotted and rotted. If that is the case, what would be the way forward for Congress? If the Congress needs to construct a future, if there is just one rotten potato within the bag, it needs to be fastened.

Did you inform Deuba Congress or different Congress?

I did not inform each of them. It is claimed solely to some Congressmen of Elam. They have the character of mandala and vampire.

What is the way forward for the ability coalition in such a scenario?

I thank everybody within the ruling coalition. It might be mentioned after a deep evaluation of the scenario within the coming days.

Can a brand new alliance be shaped?

A brand new parliament has been shaped. No one has a majority. Therefore, forming an alliance is obligatory. There is a risk of formation of various kinds of alliances. New events have additionally come. Let’s see how they transfer the nation ahead.

Is there a risk of assembly with UML?

The potentialities are infinite. Those potentialities needs to be studied. The four-party alliance continues. We focus on right here. We are speaking about taking it ahead in a extra superior method.

Are you within the presidential race now or have you ever left?

Didn’t assume something about it. We focus on what are the proper agendas to remodel the nation. The alliance can’t be sustained by speaking solely about growing numbers and sharing positions.

If there’s an settlement on the agenda to remodel the nation as you mentioned, will you run for the presidency?

Yes, let’s take into consideration such a scenario. First, there needs to be an open dialogue throughout the alliance.
