The CPN-UML will assess the party’s performance in the local elections.
Kathmandu: The CPN-UML Secretariat’s ninth meeting agreed that the party did not achieve adequate outcomes in important positions in the recently completed municipal elections.
A secretariat meeting of the UML came up with the conclusion while deciding to focus on a new course after a thorough review on the election results.
Deputy General Secretary Pradeep Kumar Gyawali, speaking at a meeting held at the Party Headquarters in Chyasal today, said that the results of the local level elections should be acknowledged after participation in the elections because citizens’ sovereign franchise was exercised in the elections.
He stated that the group reviewed the causes for the bad results in the mayor and chairperson elections, and that it was established that the CPN-UML was the largest party with 34% of the vote.
The meeting decided that the concerned committees would take action against those involved in betraying the party’s candidates, the UML leader mentioned.
Leader Gyawali also stated that no party leader should engage in blame game against the party’s main leadership.
The meeting also decided to hold an orientation session for the party’s newly elected people’s representatives on the 16th and 17th of June in Kathmandu.
Similarly, the meeting also formed some departments of the party.
