KATHMANDU, Nov 26: A meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) secretariat that was scheduled to be held today has been deferred till tomorrow.
Secretary of the NCP’s party headquarters Krishna Gopal Shrestha told Republica Online that today’s meeting was deferred due to lack of preparations.
The meeting was scheduled to be held today at 9 am at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Baluwatar.
Shrestha said that the two-member panel comprising Secretariat member Ram Bahadur Thapa and General Secretary Bishnu Poudel is currently working to submit their complete report on the allocation of responsibilities to 441 Central Committee members.
“The panel will work throughout the day today to complete the report and they are expected to present their report in tomorrow’s meeting,” he said.
Shrestha said that the party leadership is also working to give final shape to the party’s provincial committees.
Meanwhile, Shrestha said that it will take time to form the party’s politburo committee.
According to the party’s statute, there should be 147 members in the politburo committee.
Once the party’s secretariat meeting finalizes the responsibilities of the central committee members, the top party leadership will convene the party’s standing committee meeting, Shrestha added.
Even six months after the merger between the two communist parties, they are yet to settle party unification process at various levels.
