HLPM meet put off yet again

KATHMANDU: The meeting of the High Level Political Mechanism (HLPM) scheduled for early Thursday morning was postponed once again. Saturday’s meet was also postponed due to the poor health of its coordinator and Nepali Congress president Girija Prasad Koirala.

According to sources, the meeting of the HLPM is now slated for Friday morning.

The meeting was expected to finalise issues like joint Sankalpa Prastav to end the political stalemate, integration and rehabilitation of the former Maoist combatants and state restructuring committee, among other issues.

The big three parties have agreed to resolve the current political deadlock through a joint resolution motion principally though they are divided over the language of the content.
