KATHMANDU, August 24: The newly-formed CPN (Unified Socialist) led by former CPN-UML leader Madhav Kumar Nepal has said it will move forward on the path of socialism by protecting the norms and values of people's multi-party democracy, a political notion propagated by the late UML general secretary Madan Bhandari.
A two-day meeting of proposed central committee members and lawmakers of the party held at Chandragiri passed the party's statute. Some members, including Madhav Kumar Nepal, have left the CPN (UML) and formed a new party, the CPN (Unified Socialist).
The CPN (UML) has already adopted ‘people's multi-party democracy’ as its guiding principle.
Talking to media persons after the meeting, Chairperson of the party, Madhav Kumar Nepal, said that a new party has been formed rebelling against wrong tendencies, ideas and values.
Also a former Prime Minister, Nepal clarified that they had to revolt as the CPN-UML leadership did not follow any rules and regulations.
The Election Commission has set August 25 as the deadline for the Nepal-led CPN Unified Socialist to get verified and registered as a party. A group of former UML leaders including Nepal filed the application at the EC for registration of new party on August 18 as per the new ordinance relating to political party.
There would be a 151-member central committee including 115 full members with 17 office-bearers comprising one chairperson, one senior leader, seven vice-chairpersons, one general-secretary and seven secretaries as well as 36 alternative members.
