Kathmandu [Nepal], July 23 (ANI): Rashtriya Janata Party-Nepal (RJP-N) has decided to organise its first central committee meeting on August 5 in Kathmandu. According to the Kathmandu Post, the central committee's meeting would follow the unified party's first office bearer meeting on August 2-4. RJN-P leader Rajendra Mahato said that the venue for the central committee meeting was yet to be decided. The presidium would be preparing a political document to be presented in the central committee meeting. All the leaders of the party have agreed to let incumbent Chairman Mahantha Thakur lead the party until the upcoming national convention, but a formal decision on leadership is yet to be reached. The long time agitating parties of Nepal got united under the name of RJP-N about three months ago, but its registration was delayed due to dispute over inclusion of founding leaders in the Preamble of the party statute.
