NCP merger in progress

Kathmandu, July 16

Co-chairs of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal today ‘ideologically’ completed the remaining work related to unification of the then CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre that had created the NCP, said a party leader.

However, a concrete decision in this regard is yet to be taken by the party, the NCP leader said. The leader said that the top two leaders were still to decide on the division of work for central committee leaders, formation of politburo, and appointments in various party departments.

“The leaders have reached agreement, but things have not been made public. They might have finished the work ideologically, but not practically,” the leader said.

Although the two old communist parties — then CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre — were merged in May 2018, the party has yet to conclude the merger process.
