Kathmandu, April 4: The Nepali Congress party has endorsed the decision of the parliamentary party to revise the party’s statute.
A meeting of the NC central committee Monday approved the decision of the parliamentary party made earlier today to amend the party statute to hold the election of the parliamentary leader in compliance with new political scenario in the country.
The phrase Interim Constitution of Nepal-2007 will be replaced by Nepal’s Constitution, the word Constituent Assembly will be substituted by the Legislature-Parliament and the terminology of development region will be removed and province will be mentioned in its place and these are important changes to the statute, according to party central member Dilendra Prasad Badu.
Likewise, as per the principle of proportional representation adopted by the Nepal’s Constitution, 15 seats have been allocated for the representation of women, Dalit, indigenous/nationalities, Khas Arya, Madhesi, Tharu, Muslim and backward communities in the central committee.
The NC is holding election for a new parliamentary party leader on April 6 and the election of central committee on April 8. Party President Sher Bahadur Deuba and senior leader Ramchandra Poudel are vying for the post of the party’s new parliamentary leader. RSS
