CPN Maoist Centre expands CC, politburo, headquarters

KATHMANDU: The CPN Maoist Centre party on Wednesday said it expanded its Central Committee, Politburo, Secretariat and Headquarters.

The party formed after a merger of 10 Maoist parties and factions last month was already drawing flak from its cadres and members of the public for enlarging the party committees.

Party spokesperson Pampha Bhusal, organising a press conference in the Capital today, informed that now the party would have a 1,499 CC, which the party has been naming as 'General Convention Organising Committee'.

Likewise, the Politburo would have 299 members and the Secretariat 99.

The nine-member headquarters has also been expanded into the 33-member body.

Earlier, the party after the merger had announced a 1,099-member CC.

The party had also decided to form a 255-member Politburo and an 85-member Secretariat earlier.
