Although the ninth general convention of the party held in December 2021 decided to increase the women’s representation in the Central Committee to 35 percent, it has not been implemented yet.

In the organizational report presented by the Chairman of the party and Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal in the central committee meeting that started on Wednesday, it was proposed to add 22 people to reach 35 percent women members.

As the details of the party members had to be submitted to the Election Commission, the leaders of CPN (Maoist Center) were forced to immediately increase the women’s representation to 35 percent in the Central Committee.

After PM Dahal’s proposal was approved by the Central Committee meeting, 22 women leaders were added to the Central Committee. Before that, the Central Committee had 385 members.

In the Central Committee meeting, which is ongoing since August 2, members of the Central Committee have been expressing their views on the report presented by party Chairman Dahal. As of Thursday, 74 central members had expressed their views.

The meeting will continue till Sunday.
