Kathmandu, August 22
The CPN-Maoist Centre and the CPN-Unified Socialist have agreed to contest the parliamentary elections scheduled to be held in November with a common manifesto.
This decision takes the parties one step ahead towards the unification that they are mulling over.
Meanwhile, they have also decided to establish a joint coordination committee to prepare for the possible unification.
A meeting of the top party leaders held in Kathmandu on Monday made these decisions, informs a source.
In the 2017 federal and provincial parliamentary elections, the CPN-UML and the Maoist Centre had a common manifesto and it led to the party unification although it could not last long.
