Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, the two co-chairpersons of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP), have buried the hatchet and have sent a joint proposal to the party’s Standing Committee members. In the proposal, Oli has agreed to give full executive powers to Dahal.

The proposal states that day to day affairs of the government will be Oli’s responsibility, but on major issues, the PM should take the party’s consent, a Standing Committee member told THT.

The two co-chairs also agreed to ratify the Millennium Challenge Corporation agreement signed between Nepal and the United States of America only after it is amended.

This is in line with the report of the three-member task force of the NCP.

The task force had stated that the MCC agreement was against Nepal’s national interests and should be amended before it is ratified by the Parliament.
