KATHMANDU: The ruling five-party alliance is taking a final call on the candidates for the metropolitan and sub-metropolitan cities today.

A meeting of the ruling coalition held at the Prime Minister’s residence in Baluwatar Sunday agreed to decide on the candidates by Monday.

“The candidates for the metropolitan and sub-metropolitan cities will be decided by Monday,” said the Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda”.

The ruling alliance is making preparations to finalize the candidates for the metropolitan and sub-metropolitan cities from the center itself. There are six metropolitan cities and 11 metropolitan cities across the country.

CPN (Unified Socialist) has claimed thee deputy mayoral posts of three sub metropolitan cities and a mayoral post of Pokhara Metropolitan City.

Out of six metropolitan cities, Nepali Congress has claimed mayoral posts of three metropolitan cities while Unified Socialist, CPN (Maoist Center) and Janata Samajwadi Party (JSP) have claimed one each.

Both Nepali Congress and Maoist Center have claimed the post of mayor in Bharatpur Metropolitan City.

Even though an agreement has been reached between Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and Maoist Center Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’  to hand over the mayoral post of Bharatpur metropolis to Maoist Center, the NC supporters at the local level are not satisfied with the decision.

The local elections are being held on May 13.
