The growing differences between CPN-UML and Maoist Center over the issue of merger are troubling for many reasons. First, Nepali people have pinned high hopes on the current Left Alliance government to lead the country towards stability and development. When the two parties announced unification deal in October 2017 it had radiated this hope
KATHMANDU, April 10: NIC Asia Bank Ltd and International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, has exchanged a mandate letter for long-term loan. The loan from IFC is subject to approval from the Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB).
GORKHA, Dec 25: Senior leader of the CPN (Maoist Centre) Narayan Kaji Shrestha has said the people's mandate which the leftist parties have got from across the country through the elections was in favor of party unification.
The main opposition CPN-UML has concluded that the Supreme Court's decision to conduct re-election in Bharatpur Metropolitan City Ward No 19 has disrespected the people's mandate and the party is worried about the verdict setting a wrong precedent.
Inclusion has been enshrined as a fundamental right. A Nepali can file a writ at the court if the state fails to live up to this promise. Second, the constitution has institutionalized federalism as a tool for self and shared rule. It has provided for three levels of government. The third tier, which is local government and which has direct bearing on lives of people at the grassroots, has been given special powers and functions.
