Maoist Centre to take proposal forward
Jan 6, 2017-
The ruling CPN (Maoist Centre) has decided to take forward the constitution amendment process welcoming the Supreme Court’s ruling that refused to issue a stay order against the bill for parliamentary deliberations.
The Maoist Centre took the decision at a meeting of the party’s Central Office held at
Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s personal residence in Lazimpat on Thursday.
Following the meeting, leader Agni Sapkota said the party also decided to intensify parleys with other political parties to get the bill endorsed at Parliament.
The ruling party’s conclusion comes at a time when the Supreme Court ruling on the constitution amendment bill has been interpreted by the governing parties and the main opposition to their liking.
Likewise, the Moaist Centre has announced that it would hold further discussions with the UML, who have been opposing the amendment proposal, and find a middle ground to move ahead with the process.
However, another Moaist leader Mani Thapa said the meeting would continue on Friday as it failed to reach any conclusion on the organisational structure due to the PM’s hectic schedule.
