7 April, Kathmandu: Ruling CPN (Maoist Centre) has reached a conclusion to proceed with the constitution amendment process by keeping the issues of delineation aside.
A meeting of the party central office held at Prime Minister’s official residence in Baluwatar on Thursday decided to register a separate amendment proposal by incorporating the issues of language, citizenship and article 274 of Constitution of Nepal after scrapping the previous proposal.
Party Spokesperson Pampha Bhusal said that the issue of delineation would be settled based on the recommendation of a commission to be formed by giving a certain timeframe.
The party has also concluded that the Madhesi Morcha would agree after the registration of the proposal and the local level polls would be much easier.
Likewise, the Maoist Centre has decided to keep the provision of forging consensus between two neighbouring provinces in deciding the boundaries of the provinces and other vital issues.
The meeting also concluded to add some more local level units in Province No. 2 and in Nawalparasi, Rupandehi and Kapilbastu districts of Province No. 5.
The local election would be deferred in the province no 2 and province no 5 in case of technical problems, but efforts would be made to hold it on the slated May 14, the party decided.
Similarly, the polls-centered campaigns would be launched, election manifesto prepared and government’s positive performance publicized massively, Spokesperson Bhusal added.
Also the Province In-charges have been given the responsibility to select the candidates for the local levels polls.
The candidates for Metropolitan City and Sub-Metropolitan City and Municipality would be selected based on the recommendation of the Province In-charge while the Province In-charge would finalize the name of the candidates for Rural Municipality based on the recommendation of the party’s district committee.
