CEC Yadav apprises PM of election preparations
Chief Election Commissioner Ayodhi Prasad Yadav has apprised Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal of the preparations regarding the local election on Friday.
Yadav reached the PM's residence at Baluwatar on Friday morning to inform the PM about the Commission activities and ongoing preparations to hold local level election on May 14.
During the meeting, Yadav and PM Dahal also discussed about enabling conducive environment for the election that has been long overdue.
Urging the PM for his positive intervention to help create political goodwill and mutual trust among the political parties, Yadav said, "The EC wants all the political parties, inside and outside the parliament, in the country to contest in the local level election."
Reaffirming the ECN's commitment for holding the constitution mandated election within the stipulated time, Yadav pressed for forging unity among the political parties by sorting out the differences to move ahead in unison for election.
He was of the opinion that all the Nepalis and the political parties must be able to feel ownership over the upcoming election.
PM Dahal, responding to Yadav, also reaffirmed his commitment to enable favorable political atmosphere for the election.
Among the issues brought to the knowledge of the PM include the number of work force to mobilize for the election and the ballot paper that is being published and maximizing the chances of holding election in some of the districts in Terai where Madhesh-centric political parties are protesting the election.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

The regional integration initiatives & Nepal
For the small landlocked economies, such as Nepal, regional integration is more of a necessity than a policy option. The ideal way forward for Nepal to gain most out of the economic integration would be to identify the key areas in which Nepal could contribute and facilitate the promotion of those sectors.
