A meeting held between CPN-UML Chair KP Sharma Oli and CPN Maoist Centre Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Monday (Feb 12) has decided that both the parties will lead the new government in turns.
Speaking at a programme organised in the Capital today, CPN-UML Vice Chairman Bhim Rawal said, “In the one-to-one meeting, both the leaders have agreed on leading the upcoming government in turns.”
“While announcing the party merger, the left alliance had already made a seven-point agreement on handling the new government alternately,” informed Rawal. “Who will lead the upcoming government is not even a question. Both the parties have already formed an alliance. Only announcement is pending.”
The UML Vice-Chair further assured that a new government under the premiership of Oli would be formed within a week as per the people’s mandate.
He further asked the general public to remain positive and not create doubt on the merger. “We will let you know about the updates regarding the government formation, and policies and work-plan of the left alliance as soon as we decide on it.”
“Regarding the current government’s decisions against the election code of conduct and people’s aspirations, new government under the left alliance will review such decisions and move forward in carrying out its responsibilities,” said Rawal.
