Kathmandu, Oct 13: CPN-UML leader Madhav Kumar Nepal blamed the Maoists for the deferred Constituent Assembly(CA) polls in Nepal.

Speaking at a programme here, he said the Maoists brought forward their 22-points demands because they did not want to go to the polls.

He further said there was no basis for fulfilling two main demands of the Maoists-- an immediate declaration of a republic before the CA polls and adoption of a fully proportional electoral system, Kantipuronline reported.

Admitting that the postponement of the elections was not a good decision, he said it has eroded the faith of the international community.
