Oli, Dahal to name heads of departments today

Kathmandu,July 21 : Just as concerns were growing among ruling party leaders over a widening rift and trust deficit between the two top leaders, KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal appear to have found common ground.

According to party leaders, the two co-chairmen have finalised after several rounds of talks tentative work divisions for the central members, departments and committees between the leaders of the former CPN-UML and Maoist party.

According to the leaders, the two chairmen will decide the names of heads of 32 departments—18 allocated for the former UML and 14 for the former Maoist Centre—during the secretariat meeting scheduled for Sunday. The two chairmen are expected to zero in on the gentleman’s agreement reached between them in May last year after completing the outstanding works related to the party unification.

Nagarik reports that members of the erstwhile UML held a meeting on Saturday to discuss the future of the communist party. PM Oli held talks with Madhav Kumar Nepal, Jhalanath Khanal, Bishnu Paudel, Bam Dev Gautam and Ishwar Pokharel. PM Oli wanted to meet the leaders before announcing the heads of the various departments.
