Deep division in NCP surfaces

Kathmandu, 13 June: A year after unification between the two communist allies– CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center)— and formation of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP), lawmakers of the ruling NCP are sharply divided along UML and Maoist lines over disputed bills and key issues of national importance.

During deliberations in the full House and at committee meetings, NCP lawmakers with UML background have supported the bills tabled by the government in parliament while ruling party lawmakers from a Maoist background have opposed the bills. The division in the ruling party has surfaced as some of the bills including those on a proposed media council, National Human Rights Commission, advertisements, National Security Council and Guthi land have drawn widespread criticism.Similar division was seen over a parliamentary committee directive to scrap the vacancies announced by the Public Service Commission (PSC) .
