Leaders stay overnight at Hattiban Resort for decisive talks on thorny issues related to constitution drafting
Leaders of the major three political parties- UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress and CPN-UML and Madhesi alliance, United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) have been holding discussions to resolve the disputes seen in the constitution drafting since Sunday afternoon at Hattiban Resort in Kathmandu.
The leaders convened for the negotiations to resolve the disputes as they have only two days left to settle the disputes as the per the deadline set by Business Advisory Committee of the parliament. The deadline for settling the disputes, which was extended for the last time, will come to a close on Tuesday.
According to the source, as the meeting could not arrive at consensus by this evening, the top leaders have decided to stay overnight at the hotel. They are expected to forge consensus by Monday afternoon after the decisive talks.
The leaders have already booked the hotel rooms for stay, it is learnt.
The leaders have been holding intra-party discussions to prepare their bottom-line for 'give and take' on the contentious issues before the negotiations start, said the source.
The parties are yet to find common ground on various subject matters to be incorporated in the new constitution including form of the governance, restructuring of the state and judicial system among other. Nepalnews.com
