Kathmandu, Nov 21: CPN (Maoist Centre) has handed the responsibility of forging a political consensus on the constitution amendment issue to party Chair and Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda.
A meeting of the party central office that took place at the party chair's private residence Lazimpat today decided to hand over the responsibility of making initiative regarding the matter of increasing acceptability of the constitution by addressing the voices of dissenting parties to the party chair, according to party Spokesperson Pampha Bhusal.
The meeting was held focusing on the party's internal organisational structure and the constitution amendment issues.
Besides, the meeting has assigned the party chair to make necessary decisions on behalf of the party at a high-level meeting among the major political parties scheduled for today.
The party is summoning its politburo meeting on coming November 26 to make necessary decisions regarding the matters of party organisational structure, among others.
At the meeting, the leaders present put their views focusing on political efforts being undertaken to bring the dissenting Madhes-centric parties on board and on the latest political developments in the country.
In his response to the voices of party leaders, party Chair Prachanda said a high-level meeting among the three major political parties to be held this evening will discuss the constitution amendment matters.
It is noted that Prime Minister Prachanda has summoned a meeting of the highest officials of three major political parties to his official residence, Baluwatar which is expected to be pivotal in the context when the Madhesh-centric parties have given a 15-day ultimatum to the government to address their grudges over the constitution.
