KATHMANDU: A meeting of the three major political parties, due on Monday, is likely to alter the national political scene.
UCPN-Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ today made such a remark, addressing a meeting organised by Newa State Committee, a sister-organisation of the party here in the capital.
The politics was not selling smoothly following the self-styled ouster of the UCPN-Maoist government and the UML-led government coming to power.
According to Prachanda, the three major parties — Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and the Maoists — will discuss issues on Monday’s meeting centered on civilian supremacy, unconstitutional step of the President, common commitment proposal and the issue of amendment of the constitution.
Prachanda hoped that the crucial meeting of the Big Three might hammer out a solution and break the political deadlock. He also hinted that the party would come out utmost flexible in the meeting but said it would not compromise on major issues that his party stands-by.
He further said that his party had already informed the international community about its stance on ‘civilian supremacy’ and the ‘unconstitutional step’ of the President. “But we can be flexible if these issues are addressed,” he said, adding, “NC and UML have shown flexibility.”
