Kathmandu, Sep 18 (UNI) Nepal Maoists said they will disrupt the polls unless republic is declared before the polls in the Himalayan nation on November 22.

Following the announcement of quitting the government, former rebels said the election was not possible due to the conspiracy of the palace.

Addressing the mass meeting of Maoists in Tundikhel, Maoists leader Baburam Bhattarai said they would boycott the polls if election was held without declaring Nepal a republic.

The Constituent Assembly polls was the demand of the Maoists when they joined the government a few months ago.

The government wanted the declaration of republic after the election. Almost all the major political parties, including the Nepali Congress, CPN and UML, have already said they would go in for republic in the CA election.

There is no possibility of revival of monarchy if the major political parties stick to their declared policy.

The election, which was scheduled to be held on November 22 to write a new constitution in the Himalayan Kingdom, has become uncertain with the decision of the Maoists.
