Kathmandu, January 26
Communist leader Ghanashyam Bhusal who has recently joined the CPN-Unified Socialist is being appointed as the general secretary of the party, according to party sources.
Currently, the position is held by Beduram Bhusal, who will be promoted to vice-chairperson of the party, the sources say.
Ghanashyam Bhusal left the CPN-UML before the November 2022 elections. Following his exit from the UML, he contested the elections independently with the support of the alliance of the Nepali Congress, CPN-Maoist Centre and Unified Socialist but lost.
Meanwhile, the Unified Socialist is also making efforts to make leader Bamdev Gautam join the party, according to the party sources. Gautam is in conversation with the party chairman Madhav Kumar Nepal for the past few weeks about joining the party.
If Gautam agrees to join, he will be given the position of senior vice-chairperson.
