Speaking to reporters during a tea reception organised by the CPN (UML) here, Koirala said he had already put this proposal before some of the alliance leaders.

Koirala said he was trying to get them to agree on the proposal, reported Nepalnews.

UML General Secretary Madhav Kumar Nepal said his party was supportive of the idea.

Koirala also expressed confidence that the current political impasse due to differences between government and the Maoists would be resolved “very soon”.

“We were able to come to this stage by holding talks with the Maoists even when they were still carrying arms,” he said,

“This time too, we will find a solution through dialogue,” said Koirala.

Koirala is holding parleys with the leaders of ruling seven-party alliance, including the Maoists, to break the deadlock over the Maoists demand for declaring the Himalayan country as republic and also their demand for holding elections based on proportional representation. (ANI)
