UML to review party’s performance in local level elections
KATHMANDU: The ninth meeting of the CPN-UML Secretariat has concluded that the party did not get satisfactory results in the key posts in the recently held local level 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.
Sharing the information about the meeting held at the Party Headquarters in Chyasal today, Deputy General Secretary Pradeep Kumar Gyawali said results of the local level elections should be accepted after participating in the election since the sovereign franchise of citizens was exercised in the elections.
He shared that the meeting discussed reasons behind the poor results in the posts of mayor and chairperson, adding that a fact had been established that the CPN-UML had emerged as the largest party with 34 per cent of popular votes.
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 organise orientation programme for the newly-elected people’s representatives from the party on June 16 and 17 in Kathmandu.
Similarly, the meeting also formed some departments of the party. RSS
