Kathmandu [Nepal], December 12 (ANI): The left alliance of Communist Party of Nepal- Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Center) in Nepal is on the verge of winning a majority of the seats in the federal parliament and provincial assembly, but there are a lot of challenges for them, says an analyst and senior journalist.

In an interview with ANI, Kathmandu-based senior journalist Tirtha Koirala said the left alliance would have to face a heap of problems as the country was facing a lot of administrative and policy issues.

Koirala said the country needed infrastructure and laws for the smooth functioning of administration from top to bottom, be it the Parliament or local bodies.

"After the delineation, we are now in Province, Municipality, Village Municipality which we talk a lot about, these forms don't have any structures. We now need to make structures, the legal structures have been formulated but the physical structures are in the condition of absentee," he said.

" There is no place for the commencement of the parliament for which there is no certain place, some area also doesn't have the party palaces, there is compulsion of commencing the meeting in the party palaces. Some places also don't have government owned building and there is no roadmap for the governance, the local levels now are not able to function as they lack the proper legal frame works despite the election has been held long time before they are not able to go with their work," he added.

The two phased election has given a majority to the left alliance of the Communist Party of Nepal- Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) and the CPN-Maoist Centre.

As per the data released by the Election Commission by 7:30 PM (Nepali Time) on Monday, the CPN-UML has won over 74 seats and leading in five places followed by CPN-Maoist Centre with 34 wins and two leads.

The Nepali Congress is confined to 21 seats out of the 165 parliamentary seats. (ANI)
