Kathmandu, February 12
CPN-UML General Secretary Ishwar Pokharel says his party and the CPN-Maoist Centre are yet to settle differences regarding ideology and organisational structure of the new party that they plan to form after merging the two.
With the statement, a key member of the Party Unification Coordination Committee hints that the unification process will take some more time to complete.
“We need to have a common footing on organisational affairs. We are yet to form a common opinion about the organisational unification. There are also some differences about our ideology,” Pokharel said, “We are currently ironing out them.”
Speaking at a function in Kathmandu today, Pokharel added that the debate about whether the new government should be formed before the unification or vice versa was meaningless.
“The new government will be formed as per the constitution. It could occur before or after the unification. These are different issues.”
