UCPN-Maoist’s leaders left three parties meeting

Kathmandu, August 24.  UCPN -Maoist’s leaders have left the three parties meeting held in Baluwatar on Sunday after the ruling parties Nepali Congress & UML have denied to implement their proposal on the formation of High Level Political Committee (HLPC).

Ruling parties—Nepali Congress and CPN-UML—refused to endorse the Maoists proposal on the formation of HLPC fearing that it may develop into a body parallel to the government and would also interfere the government’s activities.

Major parties, after the second Constituent Assembly (CA) election, had agreed on the formation of Truth and Reconciliation Commission, HLPC and a parliamentary committee to look into the alleged vote rigging during the second CA election.

The meeting was attended by the top brass leaders of three major parties—Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN (Maoist) and was expected to discuss the nomination of 26 Constituent Assembly lawmakers and the appointment of all the vacant posts ambassadors for various countries.

On Saturday, a meeting of three parties had agreed to forge consensus on the disputed issues as per the CA calendar. The parties also had agreed to meet with parties outside the Constituent Assembly including the Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist to seek their inputs for resolving the disputed issues.
