The party is holding a politburo meeting to chalk out the future political course and prepare a detailed action plan about revamping the weak organization that led to the party's defeat, media reported.

Party leaders have suggested the leadership to start massive campaign from grass-root level to strengthen the party's organizational structure.

In the meeting, former prime minister and senior party leader Baburam Bhattarai has proposed to set up new organizational structure for rebuilding the party. 

"We are discussing a detail plan for strengthening the party organization and formulating a new policy," UCPN-M spokesperson Agni Sapkota said.

UCPN-M became Nepal's largest party in 2008 with a landslide victory in the Constituent Assembly elections. 

But in the November 19 elections, the party performed dismally, scoring a distant third after the Nepali Congress and the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML).

Party leaders said their communist ideals are fast eroding and there is a need to revive the party's original agenda and structure.
