KATHMANDU: The UCPN-M in its parliamentary party meeting today decided to garner support to make the special session end the protracted political deadlock.
After the PP meeting this afternoon, Maoist leader Dev Gurung said the party would not extend the term of the High-level Task Force.
“We are for sorting out remaining disputes on the constitution through the constitutional committee instead of a non-constitutional task force,” said UCPN-M secretary Post Bahadur Bogati.
The meeting warned the government against reintroducing cases against Maoist leaders as that would violate the Comprehensive Peace Accord and affect the peace process. Party Chief whip Post Bahadur Bogati said the party would try its best for consensus government but would go for the majority option if its attempts failed.
UCPN-M and half a dozen parties had registered a proposal to scrap Nepali Congress Parliamentary Party leader Ramchandra Paudel’s prime ministerial candidacy and amend parliamentary regulations at the Parliament Secretariat on Friday.
