Kathmandu, July 7
Two chairpersons of the ruling Nepal Communist Party have continued their efforts to find consensus to solve the ongoing dispute between them about the leadership of the party and the government.
Pushpa Kamal Dahal met Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli at his residence in Baluwatar on Tuesday afternoon. The two have been meeting almost every day for the past few days, but consensus has remained elusive.
Recently, a majority of the standing committee including chairman Dahal has demanded that another chairman of the party, Prime Minister Oli, resign from both the positions of the PM and the party chair whereas Oli is adamant against the demand.
The deadlock has led many to fear if the party, formed after the merger of the then CPN-UML and the CPN-Maoist Centre led by KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal respectively in 2018, would split again.
Owing to the dispute, the ongoing meeting of the party’s standing committee has been halted.
