Prime Minister and CPN (Maoist Centre) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has said federalism, republic, inclusion and proportional representation have been guaranteed with the holding of the local-level election.    

While welcoming new-comers to his party CPN (MC) amidst a programme at his private residence Lazimpat today, he said the country successfully held the first-round of local-level election, institutionalising the federal democratic republic.  Nobody can overturn this achievement, he continued. 

Prime Minister Dahal  expressed his confidence that the second-round election would be conducted on the scheduled date, June 14.

On the occasion  three dozens of political leaders associated with different political parties including TR Khambu of CPN (Maoist) - Netra Bikram Chand faction announced their isolation from their parties to join the CPN (MC). 

Similarly, Naya Shakti Party's central leaders Dr Chet Kumari Gurung and Dr Chandra Laksamba joined the CPN (MC), quitting the Naya Shakti.
