Kantipur Report

KATHMANDU, July 30 – Following weeks of deliberations, the Unified CPN (Maoist) Central Committee (CC) Thursday endorsed the political document tabled by Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal some two weeks ago.

The CC meeting held at the party headquarters in the capital endorsed the document today.

Chairman Dahal had furnished answers to the queries raised by the CC members a couple of days ago at the CC meeting.

According to Maoist CC member Devendra Poudel, the meeting also endorsed the statute amendment proposal.

With today’s endorsement, formation of national consensus government for constitution drafting and the conclusion of peace process as mentioned by Dahal in his document have been adopted by the Maoists as their immediate strategy.
The meeting has also decided that the party, earlier following a powerful Chairman model, will be adopting multi-post system.

As per it, incumbent Chairman Dahal will be retaining his post while senior leader Mohan Baidya, former Finance Minister Baburam Bhattarai and deputy parliamentary party leader Narayan Kaji Shrestha will be holding the post of Vice-Chairman.

Former Defense Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa will be party’s General Secretary.

Similarly, Chief Whip Post Bahadur Bogati and senior leader CP Gajurel will be party’s Secretary.
