UML Vice President Ashtalakshmi Shakya said that today’s meeting may discuss whether she will remain in the government or not.
UML Central Office Secretary Dr. Bhishma Adhikari said that the meeting will discuss the latest political developments as well as the presidential election.
CPN-UML has nominated Subas Nemwang, the vice-president of the party, as its presidential candidate. His competition will be with Ramchandra Paudel of Nepali Congress, the common candidate of the eight-party alliance. The presidential election will be held on Falgun 25.
Maoist Chairman Prachanda, who became the Prime Minister on Paush 10 with the support of UML, formed an eight-party alliance with the Congress, and UML is angry with him. The same eight-party alliance has made Poudel of the Congress the common candidate for the presidency. After that, UML is deciding whether to leave the government or not. The RPP has also withdrawn its support while leaving the government.
