Dispute over National Assembly unwarranted: CPN-MC

left unity, left alliance, unification

KATHMANDU, Dec 18: The CPN (Maoist Center) has concluded that the dispute over the formation of National Assembly was unwarranted, and a political solution should be sought for the same.

The party’s central office meeting on Monday concluded that the National Assembly should be formed as per the constitution and the law and appealed to the sides concerned to respect the popular mandate that has come through the election to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies.

“The meeting has stressed on the need to seek a solution from the senior leaders’ level”, spokesperson Pampha Bhusal said.

The meeting also concluded that the people had endorsed the left alliance as well as the proposal for party unity. A decision was taken to further accelerate the deliberations for formation of the new government.

The reason behind the low percentage of votes to the Maoist Center in the Proportional Representation (PR) system was because the party did not have a candidate in more than 60 per cent of the constituencies while there was lack of proper publicity about the system as such, the meeting concluded.

Speaking at the meeting, leaders stressed on the need for clarity in principle and organization for the unity with the CPN-UML party.
