UML asks cadres to support party stance
- feedback on statute draft
Jul 19, 2015-
The CPN-UML has instructed its leaders and cadres in the local levels to register their feedback to statute draft in line with party’s position to federate the country in minimum number of provinces connecting hills, mountains and Tarai regions.
An eight-point intra-party circular distributed to limited party leaders and cadres has instructed to advocate for promulgating new constitution without further delay and resolving delineation of provinces based on recommendations of the proposed Federal Commission.
The circular also asks party leaders and cadres not to oppose provisions of the constitution draft concerning citizenship but to demand tougher measures for the same. They are urged to support the party’s position that those in the government’s top posts should have citizenship cards by descent.
The party has also asked its cadres to raise the issue of re-appointment of members of the constitutional bodies and enforcing a threshold of 3 percent of the total votes for parties to secure seats in parliament.
Dismayed by the provision of electing Ward Committee chair through mixed electoral system, the party has instructed its cadres to stand in favour of electing head of local bodies through first-past-the-post electoral system.
