General election In Nepal 2013

Election indeed is a question of national interest for all but the syndicate of the four parties that  is driving the national interest is wrong and should be challenged. In any democratic system election means the voice of public, their aspiration and hopes are related with the formation of new government and political parties which cannot have a limitation or criteria but here in Nepal things are completely different. The four so called big parties are in the midst of conducting election despite the dis-interest shown by other political parties. They are pushing the line and putting everything in line to hold the general election 2013.   

Getting back to the opposition the Baidya party Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) and the 33 other parties have been opposing the election with valid reasons:

1. The election government is lead by Khil Raj Regmi who is the chief justice of Nepal and according to the Constitution  of Nepal no one can obtain two official government position in any condition. Currently he has withheld the position of Chief Justice till the time of election and he would rejoin his post, which practically might sound okay but technically it is wrong. The opposition wants him to resign from the post of the chief justice in midst of maintaining rule of law which is valid.
2. They want the election dates to be shifted back by  4 months from the current date saying they need preparation time which is also valid 

In both the case I believe the Baidya  party and the 33 parties have the equal right to protest against the happening. The Baidya Party has publicly announced that they would retaliate the general election with force and action. They have made it public that if their demands are bypassed then they would kidnap the party election leaders during the course of polls.

It is very obvious that with such chaos election in coming Mangshir is not agreed upon by all.  The Baidya party Plus 33 parties want to extend the election for 4 months, I don't see any harm. Apart from that this election will just turn out to be nothing than a mockery of the democratic system of Nepal, if effective measures are not taken. How can it be democratic if only limited parties attended the polls? 

My question to all is how could this election be successful when more than 33 parties are out of league? Does the Nepali government have enough money to hold re-election? It is just the pressure of the Indian counterpart that wants to establish their rule here in Nepal as we all know the Indian election are approaching in India and there are chances that BJP Narendra Modi is in the line of  next Prime Minister’s position of India so the Congress party of India wants to establish their elected and supported government here in Nepal as they know if BJP party of India wins the election then there are huge chances that Monarchy might return here in Nepal..  
I think election is the right of Nepali people so the people of Nepal should be given the right to choose their representation or not for any political manipulation or political game  .............
