The CPN (UML) and CPN (Maoist) which recently along with the Nayashakti announced the electoral alliance for the nearing elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies have decided to develop common agenda for the National Assembly election. 

A meeting held between the two parties at the UML's parliamentary party office in Singha Durbar today discussed the issues relating to the formation of the National Assembly and its model. 

Senior legal practitioners and former Attorney General were also present in the meeting. 

The meeting focused on the discussions about whether adopting the majority electoral system or single transferable vote in the National Assembly election. 

Talking to media persons following the meeting, lawmaker Ramnarayan Bidari confirmed the discussions about the formation of the National Assembly and electoral process in the two parties' meeting. 
In the meeting, top leaders of both parties exchanged views on constitutional arrangements for the National Assembly election and coping with adversities seen towards that end. 

Likewise, during the meeting, top leaders of both political parties held consultations with the legal practitioners regarding the government preparation to remove ministers from the Maoist Center or expanding the size of the Cabinet.

Legal practitioners were of the view that the government lacked legal ground to reshuffle the government when the election code of conduct is already into force and due to other constitutional and political reasons.
