KATHMANDU: The central committee meeting of the CPN (UML) has started recently. The meeting would make a final decision whether or not to form the CJ-led election government. The top leaders meeting with the President was put off as the UML failed to make its official stance.
On Friday, most of the central committee members of the UML were sharply divided over the formation of the CJ-led government. “They opined their views against the CJ-headed government,” UML’s publicity department chief Pradip Gyawali said.
However, the party establishment faction has tried to appease the party central committee members saying that formation of the CJ-led government was an opportunity to replace the Bhattarai-led government and should be cashed in. However, party general secretary Ishwor Pokhrel, secretary Shankar Pokhrel and some other leaders have opposed the CJ-headed government as it would challenge the theory of power separation.
