 CPN (UML) has stated that the new government will be formed in accordance with Article 76(2) of the Constitution.

The secretariat meeting held  at the party central office in Chyasal, Lalitpur concluded that there is no confusion in the formation of the government as per Article 76(2) of the Constitution.

UML Deputy General Secretary Pradeep Gyawali said that the Supreme Court has issued a precedent that the government could be formed multiple times with the same article until and unless there are strong grounds against it.

"There is no constitutional complication in the formation of the new government according to Article 76 (2) of the Constitution, as in 2078 BS, the then KP Sharma Oli government formed according to Article 76 (2) of the Constitution did not receive a vote of confidence the next government was formed following the same article." Gyawali said.

Leader Gyawali said, "Even now, if Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' does not receive a vote of confidence, then the President calls for the formation of another government according to Article 76 (2) of the Constitution.

He further said that there was no concrete discussion on the amendment of the constitution with Nepali Congress. But, as a progressive document, the constitution could be amended for political stability and good cause.

The secretariat meeting decided to give responsibility of House of Representatives and Province Assembly constituencies to central committee members, shared Deputy general-Secretary Gyawali.

Reviewing its decision taken a year ago, the UML took the decision to depute all central committee members in their constituencies. He shared that further decision would be taken by making criteria regarding division of duties in the next secretariat meeting.
