9 Dec, Kathmandu. Chairman of the CPN-Maoist Center Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda has proposed to increase the number of party office bearers to 15. At a meeting of the standing committee held at the party’s Parisdanda office on Friday, Chairman Prachanda proposed to hold the posts of chairman, vice-chairman, general secretary and secretary.

The current Interim Legislature provides for only one chairperson, one vice-chairperson, one secretary general, one deputy secretary general and one secretary. However, as the number of office bearers in the lower level committees has been increased, a Legislative Amendment Committee has been formed at the center.

Prachanda proposed to form a 15-member office-bearers while the committee was debating whether it would be 11 or 13 at the center as it has five members in wards, seven in municipalities and nine in states. Standing committee member Haribol Gajurel informed that the number of members will be discussed in the meeting on Saturday.

The UCPN (Maoist) is holding a national conference in Kathmandu on Sunday to elect a new leadership.

The conference will decide the party’s line of action.
