Kathmandu, May 16
The secretariat of ruling Nepal Communist Party on Thursday discussed unifying sister organisations of former CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre.
Though it has already been one years since the two parties unified to form the NCP, their sister organisations and local committees are yet to merge.
As Friday marks the first anniversary of the unification announcement, the party is trying to wrap up mergers of sister bodies as soon as possible.
Sources say the meeting discussed dividing leadership positions of 22 sisters organisations between former UML and former Maoist Centre leaders. A proposal calls for giving 13 positions to the UML and nine to the Maoist Centre whereas another wants the ratio to be 12:10, according to a member of the secretariat.
Among powerful sister bodies, the former UML side is most likely to get leadership positions of the student union and the trade union whereas the former Maoist leaders will lead the youth wing and the women wing.
