Inaugurating the third global conference of the Non-resident Nepali (NRN) Association here, Koirala said it was natural to have complications at the final stage of any important work.

“I want to assure you that the seven-party alliance would not break,” Koirala was quoted, as saying by Kantipuronline.

Koirala further said that fresh date for the Constituent Assembly elections, which have been suspended, will be announced soon.

He expressed confidence that the current political impasse will end soon.

Koirala indicated that his government will take the concerns expressed by Nepal’s immediate neighbours on the political crises.

“If my neighbour’s house is on fire, I will go there with a bucket of water,” Koirala said.

Meanwhile, Koirala has intensified discussions with political leaders to end the political deadlock in the wake of Maoists demand for declaring the Himalayan country a republic immediately and elections based on proportional representation system.

Koirala has said that the fate of monarchy can be decided only after Constituent Assembly polls.

Earlier today, Koirala held consultations with CPN (UML) General Secretary Madhav Kumar Nepal, Janamorcha Nepal Chairman Amik Sherchan and CPN (Unity Centre-Masal) General Secretary Prakash.

UML, PFN and Masal leaders are scheduled to meet Maoist leaders later today to find a consensus on the Maoist demands for declaration of Nepal as a republic and elections based on proportional representation. (ANI)
