From Shirish B Pradhan Kathmandu, May 27 (PTI) Fresh elections to the Constituent Assembly in Nepal will be held on November 22 this year, the coalition government announced minutes before the midnight deadline tonight to promulgate the Constitution. The cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai, held an emergency meeting and also recommended to President Ram Baran Yadav to dissolve the Constituent Assembly, Health Minister and key Madhesi leader Rajendra Mahato said. Immediately after the meeting the Prime Minister went to the Rastrapati Bhawan and conveyed the decision of the cabinet recommending for the fresh election date. The Constituent Assembly election held on April 2008 had elected 601 member Constituent Assembly for drafting a new constitution. Nepali Congress has raised strong objection to the Prime Minister's announcement of fresh election without consulting other major political parties. "This is conspiracy and we will expose the move," said  Nepali Congress vice president Ramchandra Poudyal. "The Prime Minister's move was totally against the constitutional provision and also illegal," he said. "We have proposed to convert the Constituent Assembly to function as Parliament so that it could complete task of drafting the constitution, but the Prime Minister unilaterally announced the election which is totally against the law," he said. However, Sadbhawana Party President Rajendra Mahato blamed the Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML for failure to draft the Constitution saying that both the parties had blocked the promulgation of the constitution with the provision of federal structure.
