NC and UML have set preconditions for their support to a Maoist-led future government
Central committee meetings of the second and third largest political parties in the newly constituted Constituent Assembly took the decision yesterday after days of deliberation on whether to join a Maoist-led coalition or remain outside.
>Dissolution of the Maoist people’s army, people’s courts and people’s government- as per the agreement that the Maoists have already entered into but have always ignored in practice.
>Dissolution of the semi-military structure of the Young Communist League.
>A time-bound plan to integrate the Maoist army and dispose of or surrender their weapons to the state.
>Maoists return the property looted or captured by them.
>Rehabilitate displaced people and stop intimidation, threats and extortion.
>Amend the constitution before the CA meeting (for implementing the republic through its first meeting and have provision to remove the PM by a simple majority.)
A press statement issued by Nepali Congress General Secretary Bimalendra Nidhi said:
“Nepali Congress is committed to giving continuity to the politics of consensus in a wider sphere under the mandate of the epoch-making Janaandolan even after the CA polls. However, the Nepali Congress concludes that the consensus should not be for participation in the next (new) government but for accomplishing the two goals of the Janaandolan and the CA elections – framing of a democratic constitution and taking the peace process to its goal. “It is also necessary to conform to the normal parliamentary practice of formation and ouster of a government through simple majority Nepali Congress support to the future government depends on full implementation of the above mentioned points.” (read here in detail)
