Kathmandu, June 18
A committee formed to recommend key provisions for the new statute of the recently-formed Nepal Communist Party has suggested that leaders be allowed to hold a particular office not more than two consecutive terms.
The other key provision recommended by the committee says that a party leader won’t also be allowed to contest for the same position twice.
“If we start the count from the day the party was formed, co-chairs KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahl can only contest for the Chairman post one last time. However, the party leaders are yet to decide on the cut-off date,” informed a party leader.
Similarly, most leaders have suggested that the cut-off date be set after general convention only. The suggestions will now be discussed in the standing committee, and the party secretariat will prepare a proposal and present before the central committee.
The committee has also recommended that the core leadership of the party be divided into eight groups such as the national convention, central committee, and central investigation committee, among others. Likewise, the provincial committee will also have a structure similar to the central committee with 175 members. The party shall also have 33 per cent women at all levels.
