The Unified CPN-Maoist party of Nepal on Monday adopted a new statute “with the objective of reaching communism all the way through socialism”.
The party was formed by the unification of the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist, which emerged as the largest party in the election to the constituent assembly and heads the present coalition government, and the CPN-Ekata Kendra Masal.
A meeting of the party held at the parliamentary party office in Singha Durbar in Kathmandu endorsed the new statute.
The statute mentions that the party will lay the foundation for attaining its objective of communism by drafting a new people-oriented constitution.
The statute was passed after the lawmakers expressed their views on the draft tabled at the meeting, Amik Sherchan said.
During the meeting, Maoist ministers explained about the working of their ministries in detail.
The statute provides for the removal of the chief leader and deputy leader hrough the vote of confidence.
The party leader is required to convene a parliamentary meeting within fifteen days if one-fourth of the members demanded it.
There is a provision to form a board under the leadership of one of the lawmakers to carry out the all functions in case the party meeting does not take place.
