CPM to set age limit of 75 for party leaders; many prominent members to be removed


Thiruvananthapuram: CPI(M) has reportedly decided to restrict the appointment of leaders aged above 75 in the party-state committee and the levels above. The decision was confirmed by CPM leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan on Tuesday, and has been taken ahead of the 23rd Party Congress.


‘New party members should be given a chance. Many senior members will have to step down because of the age limit. However, the allowances, medical care and other assistance will be continued’, Kodiyeri said. He added that it was mandatory to have at least one woman in every district secretariat.
