Ruling party Standing Committee meeting postponed again until WednesdayTalks between Oli and Dahal start at Baluwatar.
The Standing Committee meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party has been postponed again until Wednesday, as two chairs, KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, sat for talks for negotiations at Baluwatar.
“The Standing Committee meeting has been postponed till 11 am Wednesday,” said Bishnu Sapkota, Dahal's press advisor.
The ruling party is on the verge of split as Oli and Dahal have hardened positions.
Dahal has been demanding Oli's resignation both as party chair and prime minister but the latter has refused.
On Sunday, Dahal also demanded why Oli had spread rumours about plots to oust him from both posts and impeach the President.
After 30 out of 44 Standing Committee members upped the ante against Oli, Oli on Thursday prorogued the House raising concerns if he was planning a party split through an ordinance.
The Standing Committee has not sat since.
"The two chairs are holding talks at Baluwatar now," said Sapkota.
