Debate on order of precedence takes centre stage in the ruling party

Jhalanath Khanal’s elevation to the third position stirs up a seniority row in the party.

Madhav Kumar Nepal, a senior leader of the ruling Nepal Communist Party, has expressed dissatisfaction and said he felt humiliated at the leadership’s decision to promote Jhalanath Khanal as the party’s third-ranked leader.

Nepal, who has never been ranked fourth in his political career, expressed his dismay at the party’s decision soon after he arrived at Janakpur airport on Monday.

“Earlier it was Khanal, and this time it’s my turn to be humiliated,” he told reporters.

Nepal, who was third in the party order of precedence, after two Co-chairs KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, has now been relegated to fourth position in the party.

This sudden change in the ranking of the two leaders—both former prime ministers—does not bode well for the party, as proper procedures are not being followed, party insiders told the Post.
