KATHMANDU: The Central Committee Meeting of the UCPN-Maoist has kicked off at the party headquarters in Parisdanda, Kathmandu to pick candidates and decide strategy for the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) polls.
Some 80 leaders who visited the constituencies to study the party’s situation briefed the CC about the feedback that they received. The central leaders visited 240 constituencies and received information about the party’s position for the upcoming elections of the constituent assembly. Most of the leaders speaking in today’s meeting informed that the campaign helped to strengthen relations with the public.
The party has analyzed that the party has to cope with internal management besides the external challenges to win the CA polls. The party has taken its unmanaged committees, huge mob of ambitious people in the parliament, internal management and mobilization as major challenges.
According to party leaders today’s meeting heard reporting from the four state committees including Magarat and Tharuwan, while remaining teams will do the reporting tomorrow. UCPN-Maoist had launched a month-long election campaign from July 25 which concluded yesterday. The party had mobilized central leaders in all 240 election constituencies for the “Public Relation Campaign.” The CC meeting is also expected to make decisions on the nomination of candidates after examining the feedback, and prepare a strategy for the election.
In an earlier assessment, the Maoists said they will not lose electoral seats in the hills but need to work hard to expand their grip in the Terai plains
A meeting of the party’s former Standing Committee convened on Monday had decided to launch election centric campaign. UCPN-Maoist recently formed the production brigade in an attempt to improve its image to the public. Recently Maoist has been facing criticism from the public for its unruly activities. Similarly, Maoist leaders have been facing criticism for their lavish lifestyle after they joined the mainstream politics leaving the decade long armed insurgency in 2006.
Similarly, the closed-door session of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal discussed the strategy of the party for upcoming elections of the constituent assembly.
The delegates are expressing their views and giving suggestions basically on the political paper presented by party chairman Kamal Thapa, the forthcoming Constituent Assembly election, selection of candidates from the party, financial resource mobilization and preparation of the party’s election manifesto.
Party chairman Thapa inaugurated the three-day National Conference on Monday. Taking part in the conference are the party’s central committee members, presidents, vice presidents and secretaries of all the district committees of the party, the office bearers of the committees under the party’s central work execution department and the chiefs of the party’s liaison forums and different sister organizations.
The RPP Nepal plans to formulate the strategy for the forthcoming CA election incorporating all the suggestions received in course of the closed-door session. It will announce its future programs through a declaration assembly on Wednesday.
The party, which won four seats in the first Constituent Assembly, is trying to make sizeable presence in the second constituent assembly taking advantage of the failure of the first constituent assembly to draft the new constituent assembly. The party has been blaming four political parties for the failure to draft the new constituent assembly.
