Nepali major political parties have agreed to prepare a draft of the calendar of operation for the remaining 11-month term of the Constituent Assembly (CA).

The leaders reached the agreement to this effect at a meeting held among the leaders from the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), Nepali Congress and the Communist Party Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist at the presence of CA Chairman Subas Nembang on Sunday morning.

"We decided to come up with drafts of calendar of operation from each party tomorrow (Monday) and then we will sit together and prepare a common draft and finalize that after further discussions," NC Parliamentary Party leader Ram Chandra Poudel told reporters after the meeting at the CA building in New Baneshwar in the capital.

The leaders also reached an understanding on the need of fixing the number of members to be appointed for the State Restructuring Commission (SRC) and fix its tenure. The CA calendar of operation will be finalized according to the tenure to be given to the SRC to prepare its report.

"We have agreed to further the discussions on the eight preliminary reports prepared by the CA thematic committees, among other pending works on the constitution drafting," Poudel said.

Nembang said he is optimistic that various issues including the calendar of operation and the SRC will be resolved at the Monday meeting.
