Nepal Foreign Affairs (14 December 2017) – India has welcomed the conduction of Federal Parliament and Provincial Assembly elections held for the first time after the adoption of new constitution in Nepal.
In a weekly media briefing by India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday, MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar also said that India is looking forward to working with the next government.
”India welcomes the conduct parliamentary elections and first ever provincial elections in Nepal. We congratulate the government and the people of Nepal” MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said while responding a question on election’s result of Nepal.
He hinted that India is ready to work with the left government to further advance the bilateral relations. ”We look forward to working with the next democratically elected government in Nepal to advance our close and multifaceted partnership across all sectors and to support Nepal in its pursuit of peace, stability, economic prosperity and all round development.” he said.
The elections were held across Nepal in two phases—on November 26 and December 7, the vote counting of which has almost concluded with Nepal set to elect a government of left alliance constituting CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Centre).
In September 2015, when Nepal promulgated a new constitution approved with around 90 percent majority of the Constituent Assembly, India had released a statement saying it merely ‘noted’ the constitution promulgation in Nepal.
Though some political observers believe that the soon-to -be-formed government of left alliance would increase ties with Nepal’s northern neighbor China, it remains to be seen how the next government will build its relations with its two close neighbours.
