April 13 – Vote Count – proceeding full on.
Constituent Assembly Elections April 10, 2008.
Current Prime Minister Girija Prashad Koirala must have used his insight (or intuition) to have registered his candidacy in the Proportional Representation System of the CA elections, not for the First-Past-The-Post sytem.
Prime Minister Girija Prashad Koirala was doing OK. People forgot his past errors (corruptions) and even commended his ability to hold the interim government, the Seven Party Alliance, intact.
Until he wanted to play DHRITARASTRA!
Having reached quite near towards the brim of the life, he got blinded by the love for his baby girl and announced Sujata Koirala as “Minister without Portfolio”. He must have had constant prophetic nightmares of Koirala legacy’s “whitewash” since then.
Sushil Koirala – out!!!
Defeated by Sarbadev Prasad Ojha of Madhesi People’s Rights Forum in Banke – 3
Sujata Koirala – out!!
Defeated by Upendra Yadav of Madhesi People’s Rights Forum in Sunsari – 5
Shekhar Koirala – out!
Defeated by Bijaya Kumar Gachchhadar of Madhesi People’s Rights Forum in Morang -7
I really don’t have any idea if they are related to the Koirala dynasty, but still,
Ashok Koirala – out
Defeated by Gopi Bahadur Sarki of Communist Party of Nepal – Maoists in Morang – 8
And one left, Sasanka Koirala in Nawalparashi -1.
Sushil Koirala has already announced his resignation from the Vice – Presidency of the Nepali Congress. Good. Better would be, if Sujata Koirala announces resignation from her post “Minister without Portfolio” with whatever dignity she has left.
Nepali Congress will surely nominate the five times prime minister, Girija Prasad Koirala from the PR system; I hope they include Gagan Thapa as well. Their inclusion in the assembly to draft the new constitution is essential (even though GP Koirala has announced to retire after the CA elections and hand over Nepali Congress leadership to a younger generation.)
As for the rest of the Koirala-s, CIAO, BYE BYE, GO AWAY, BUUUU HUUUU, GET LOST.
Our nation will be better off without them.
