Kathmandu : The CPN (UML) Central Committee's eighth meeting ended Sunday by evaluating the party's electoral performance in Province-2. The meeting noted that the performance in the election was satisfactory despite adverse circumstances to the party. 

The meeting termed voters' support to the party as aspiration for peace, prosperity and stability, which the party said, was praiseworthy. 

The three-day long CC meeting endorsed unanimously the political proposal of Chairman KP Sharma Oli by incorporating the suggestions furnished by the members. 

The meeting also approved of a 14-point contemporary proposal. All leaders and cadres were urged for unity in view of the upcoming federal and provincial elections. 

Speaking in the meeting, Chair Oli argued that the UML's majority government was a must in both provincial and federal levels to protect national interest, strengthen social harmony, and implement constitution. 

The meeting condemned the government's arbitrary decision of adding the local units in Province-2 after the announcement of election, arbitrary use of force from ruling parties, capture of the booths, transfers of the officials which flatly violated the election code of conduct. 

Similarly, the meeting allocated the responsibility for preparing the criteria for the party candidates for the upcoming federal and provincial elections to the standing committee. The authority to sign in the nomination letters to the party ias assigned to Chair Oli.

The meeting also objected the latest expansion of the Cabinet (56 members). PM's justification regarding the expansion of Cabinet given during his ongoing USA visit was objectionable as PM had said that the Cabinet members could be reached to 60.

Assembly and State Assemblies. 

The meeting has also condemned the Prime Minister Deuba's comment on constitution amendment made during his India trip. During the PM's India visit, the joint statement signed was against the foreign policy, inviting foreign involvement in Nepal Army and security system adding that construction of Koshi High Dam was against the national interests. 

Even the civil servants, security personnel and government employees are requested to contribute to conduct the polls in a free, fair and fearless manner. 

Similarly, the UML has condemned the act of writing a letter to the court from the Indian side attempting to challenge the independence of the judiciary and has condemned the act of writing from the concerned ministry to the court instead of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' sending back the letter. 

The party reiterated that the communist, patriotic and progressive forces and individuals could to come for cooperation by making a minimum basis.
