A meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) is scheduled to take place this afternoon.
Prime Minister KP Oli called the Secretariat meeting for today following pressures by a majority of Secretariat members.
The meeting has been scheduled for today afternoon after five top-notch leaders including NCP Executive Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal piled pressure on PM Oli to call the meeting.
According to General Secretary Bishnu Paudel, the SC meeting will be held at 4 pm in line with the agreement between chairman duo PM Oli and Dahal.
Dahal had been urging Prime Minister Oli to call party meetings to resolve the widening intra-party dispute.
The majority of Secretariat members had demanded the meetings after Oli warned that he would split the party if the meetings were convened without consensus.
Dahal-Nepal faction has been dissatisfied with Oli after latter unilaterally recommended ambassadors, reformed cabinet, brought no confidence motion against chief minister of Karnali Pradesh and held a meeting with the chief of the Research and Analysis Wing, the foreign intelligence agency of India.
