The Naya Shakti Nepal on Thursday announced a 151-member central committee alongside a small team of party office bearers.
Besides a few established political figures, the list includes former bureaucrats, civil society members and celebrities. The youngest force also set up a central coordination panel with a 13-member office bearers’ team. The panel would remain until the party’s first general convention expected to take place next year. Naya Shakti coordinator Baburam Bhattarai on Thursday told reporters that the committee would be replaced by elected representatives after the convention.
“We have decided to elect representatives right from the village level to the top. None of these representatives will be allowed to hold a position for more than two terms,” said Bhattarai.
The former prime minister added that the party prioritises proportional representation of all the communities. Two weeks after its announcement on June 13, the party also unveiled its interim
statute and organisational principles.
The party would adhere to a “democratic leftist ideology vying for prosperous democratic-socialism”.
