By-elections results increased NC’s confidence: Sharma
KATHMANDU: The main opposition Nepali Congress (NC) has said that the results of the recently held by-election have increased the party’s organizational self-confidence and encouraged it to move ahead with goals of wining the next elections.
Voters have endorsed the NC as a responsible and decent opposition by giving it more votes comparatively despite many upheavals, said NC’s spokesperson Bishwo Prakash Sharma at a press conference organized here at NC’s central office.
“We have got a message from the by-poll that there is a need to review our weak performance in some polling locations. The difference in the number of votes in the recently held by-poll between the NC and ruling Nepal Communist Party has decreased as compared to the previous election,” he said.
In another context, he said the people’s mandate through the by-election has given a message that the incumbent government should correct itself. He referred to their “appeal’ to the voters that their votes could help correct the government although the by-election was not meant to form or change a government.
The NC thanked all voters who participated in the by-election and voted for the NC and those who won the by-poll. It also thanked employees of the Election Commission, civil servants, security personnel and media-persons for their contribution to the by-election.
