Kathmandu, September 12
The ruling Nepal Communist Party is wrapping up the unification of two youth organisations affiliated to then CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre on Friday. Whereas the two parties merged to form the NCP over one year ago, most of their sister organisations are yet to unify.
The unified party had directed its youth leaders to limit the number of central committee members of the youth wing to 251. However, the negotiators decided to increase the size to 335 so as to accommodate elected central members of both sides. The leaders say they have already got the change approved from the mother party.
Ram Prasad Sapkota and Ramesh Paudel, who led the youth wings of the Maoist Centre and the UML respectively, inform in a statement on Thursday that the new central committee will include 335 members from the UML side and 176 from the Maoist side. Four other members will be appointed later.
The UML side will lead four provincial and 42 district committees whereas the Maoist side will lead three provincial and 35 district committees.
