KATHMANDU, Feb 25: The Nepali Congress Central Working Committee meeting is all set to approve the statute for federal parliamentary party today. The meeting is underway at the Party Central Office, Sanepa from 9:00 AM.
The NC parliamentary party meeting held in Singha Durbar on Saturday passed the statute with some amendments presented by leader Minendra Rijal.
NC prepared a new statute in view of the federal parliament having the National Assembly and the House of Representatives.
The central committee meeting would initiate the process to pick the parliamentary party leader after approving the statute, said spokesperson Bishwo Prakash Sharma. According to Sharma, the statute paves the way for electing the parliamentary party leader.
The meeting thanked party President Sher Bahadur Deuba for successfully holding the three-tier elections, thereby ensuring a strong foundation to implement the Constitution and federalism.
It is said that utmost efforts would be made to elect the parliamentary party leader unanimously. However, if the consensus eludes, the party will go for election.
To pile pressure on party central leaders, Nepal Student Union, party's student wing, has staged protests demanding that the party be run democratically.
