Maoists agree to participate in new Government in NepalJuly 29th, 2008 - 2:44 pm ICT by ANI
Kathmandu, July 29 (ANI): The CPN (Maoist) with a view to form a new Government in Nepal has started its homework and sought support from parties represented in the Constituent Assembly (CA).
On Monday, Maoist leaders held a meeting at the parliament secretariat and sought support from all 25 parties represented in the Constituent Assembly, for forming a new government under Maoist leadership.
Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda has said: “Initially, we had arrived at a decision not to form the new government after we were reduced to a minority in the Assembly because of the alliance of the Nepali Congress, the CPN-UML and the MPRF.”
“We are now ready to form the government as the parties in the alliance including the UML and the MPRF have categorically urged us to do so,” he added.
He said the party is carrying out homework to prepare the agenda of the new government and will come up with a proposal within a few days.
Prachanda further said that the three points raised by the party at a previous all-party meeting were not pre-conditions set by the Maoists for forming the government but the party’’s views on what would be a better option.
At the meeting, Maoist leaders also argued that it would not be appropriate for caretaker Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala to lead a delegation to the SAARC Summit to be held from August 2, Kantipur reported. (ANI)
