Kathmandu: The Madhav Kumar Nepal faction of the CPN-UML has decided not to attend a Central Committee meeting of the party summoned for Friday.

The 10th National General Convention Organizing Committee meeting of the ruling party held on Wednesday had dissolved the committee to revive the erstwhile Central Committee. The decision was made to address the demand from the dissenting faction of the party.

A meeting of the Standing Committee members of the Nepal faction held in Baneshwor on Thursday decided not to participate in the meeting on Friday, said leader Yogesh Bhattarai.

The Oli faction has been claiming that the Central Committee has been taken back to the status of May 16, 2018. But the Nepal faction has refused to accept it arguing that leaders defecting CPN (Maoist Center) have also been included.
