KATHMANDU: The leaders of four major parties have agreed to let the task force of Constitution Drafting Committee resolve differences over some issues based on the 16-point agreement, and asked the CDC to revise and prepare an integrated draft of new constitution accordingly. The ruling Nepali Congress and CPN-UML and the opposition parties UCPN-Maoist and Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum-Democratic held a meeting at Prime Minister Sushil Koirala's official residence in Baluwatar, on Wednesday morning, to discuss the draft that the CDC is sketching out. Though the parties forged the 16-point agreement resolving their differences over crucial issues, they are yet to agree upon some issues including pluralism. Emerging from the meeting, leaders said that the parties suggested the CDC to resolve the remaining issues whatsoever in the spirit of 16-point agreement. Meanwhile, a full meeting of CDC extended the term of its task force by two days to give a final shape to the draft of new constitution.
