Chitwan, February 20
CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has refused to clarify if he signed an agreement with the CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli to share the five-year term of prime minister between two.
Whereas media reports have claimed that the two leaders have sealed a secret ‘gentleman’s agreement’ to share the premiership, Dahal says for now, Oli can be supposed to be a full-term PM.
It has been reported that the two parties have agreed not to make the deal public as it would eventually make the government weak and give a wrong impression among the public.
Dahal says the unified party to be formed after the merger of two parties will hold its general convention within next couple of years and the convention will decide next course of action of the party. “For now, Oli is the prime minister for next five years. I cannot be sure if the general convention decides otherwise.”
Regarding the party leadership, the leader says Oli and he will chair party meetings turn by turn.
