Chairman of the Unified CPN (Maoist), Pushpa Kamal Dahal, has said the political parties had no differences as such on other issues of a new constitution except the structure of federalism, in the context of issuing a constitution.
Former Prime Minister Dahal expressed this view in a meeting with a delegation of the Professionals Alliance for Peace and Democracy (PAPAD) at his residence in Lazimpat this morning.
Leader Dahal said a new constitution would be issued in the last hour on coming January 22 through consensus.
"All the parties representing in the Constituent Assembly are in favour of constitution; there is no dispute over the number of provinces in terms of federalism and the dispute is only on the topic of the structure of the federation," he said.
Stating the issue of forms of governance would be finalised within some days, he said his party was committed to issuing a constitution on the stipulated date itself.
The PAPAD delegation was led by its president Dr Anjani Kumar Jha, who is also the president of the Nepal Medical Association. The presidents of other organisations in PAPAD as the Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ), Nepal Bar Association, Nepal University Teachers Association, Nepal Teachers Union and Nepal Engineers Association were present on the occasion reports RSS.
