CPN (Unified Socialist) has announced its decision to participate in a socialist front alongside other communist parties. The party’s secretariat meeting made the decision.
Jagannath Khatiwada, the Unified Socialist Spokesperson and Deputy General Secretary, revealed that the front would be officially announced in the coming days after internal discussions among all the concerned parties.
“We have unanimously declared to participate in announcement of the socialist front to be held soon after completing internal meetings of everyone,” Khatiwada stated.
The anticipated Socialist Front, which has been a topic of much discussion, is scheduled to be officially announced either on Friday or Saturday, as stated by the leaders of the respective parties involved. On Wednesday, Prime Minister and Chairman of CPN (Maoist Centre), Pushpa Kamal Dahal, expressed that preparations are currently underway to establish a “broad socialist front” with the aim of accomplishing the socialist revolution within the nation.
A concept paper outlining the framework for the front, which will bring together multiple leftist and communist parties, has already been prepared, indicating that the formation of the front is imminent, as per Dahal’s statement.
Maoist Centre leader Devendra Poudel mentioned, “We are making efforts to launch the Socialist Front by Friday,” further adding that the announcement may be made on Saturday if it is not possible to do so by Friday.
However, it is important to note that the largest communist party in the country, CPN-UML, will not be participating in this initiative.
