Ideology is a powerful tool for packaging a broad political agenda but faith-based fixations almost invariably lead to bad policies

Despite being on the committee to distribute election tickets, CPN-UML’s vice chairman, Yubaraj Gyawali has publicly stated that he couldn’t compete in the elections because of expensive party tickets.

The congress also agreed to include statements in the party charter that the CPC will uphold its absolute leadership over the People's Liberation Army.

The current weather condition correctly personifies the socio-political temperament of the nation, or at least in the province of 1, 5 and 7. Along with the rising temperature, political landscape is in frenzy with former adversaries now allies and vice-versa. What is more peculiar is the tie-up between forces opposite in nature who in past couldn’t stand each other. Politics is said to be ever-changing, belonging to none and rightfully so. The new formed pact goes to show how unexpected this election is, with none wanting to take a chance and willing to forego their ideologies in hopes to win the coming election.
