KATHMANDU – The government on Friday objected the joint statement issued by the European Union and India after the thirteenth EU-India summit held in Brussels on Wednesday, which had a reference to Nepal’s recently promulgated Constitution was completely inappropriate.

According to government spokesperson and Minister for Information and Communications Sherdhan Rai, the Cabinet meeting held Friday at Singha Durbar concluded that the EU-India joint statement on Nepal was completely inappropriate.

Point 17 of the joint statement expressed that “India and the EU have agreed on the need for a lasting and inclusive constitutional settlement in Nepal that will address the remaining constitutional issues in a time-bound manner, and promote political stability and economic growth.”

The meeting also said that Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s state visit to China was productive.

The government said that the agreements signed with China during Prime Minister Oli’s visit to the northern neighbor were historic achievements.

Issuing a press statement on Thursday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also took serious exception to the statement. It said that the joint statement not only hurts the sentiments of the people of Nepal but also defies the fundamental principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of a country, and is in breach of the UN Charter and the norms of international law.

KATHMANDU — The two parties of left alliance — CPN-UML and CPN Maoist Centre — have finally reached an agreement on unification and signed a seven point agreement on the modality of the unification on Monday evening.

A meeting of top leaders of the two parties at late Monday evening officially approved the ‘left unity’ deal agreeing, in principle, on party leadership, organization and ideology.

UML Chairman and Prime Minister (PM) KP Sharma Oli, Jhala Nath Khanal, Madhav Kumar Nepal, Bam Dev Gautam and Ishwor Pokharel have signed the agreement on behalf of UML whereas Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, senior leaders Narayan Kaji Shrestha and Ram Bahadur Thapa have signed the agreement on behalf of the Maoist Centre.

In a seven-point agreement signed by eight leaders, the two parties have agreed to form Communist Party of Nepal(CPN), a leftist party with Marxist-Leninist ideology as its guiding principle.

Likewise, as per the agreement, People’s Multiparty Democracy (‘Janata ko Bahudaliya Janawawd’ known as Ja-Ba-Ja as propagated by later UML leader Madan Bhandari) and Maoism will be deliberated upon as the ideological lines of the party at the general convention of the unified party.

UMl chair KP Sharma Oli and Maoist Center chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal will co-chair the party in a bi-chairman system until the general convention and that both will take turns in leading the government.

The agreement on parallel leadership will remain until the first general convention, while collective leadership model would be followed for other portfolios.

As per understanding reached between the two parties, Oli would head the government for the first three years, while Dahal would lead the government for the remaining two years.

According to the leaders present during the signing of the deal, the agreement was signed after interlocutors from the two sides hammered out a sketch deal on leadership, organization and ideology which would be given actual shape through a joint general convention in around a year and a half. However, the agreement on leadership and organization has not been disclosed in the written agreement.

Monday’s merger deal, given the size of the two parties, is the biggest political experiment of its kind in Nepal’s history which will have long-run impact on Nepal’s political, economic and social spheres.
