Nepali major parties' meeting inconclusive, consensus gov't unlikely

07-13-2010 11:58 BJT

KATHMANDU, July 13 (Xinhua) -- Nepal's three major political parties -- Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (UCPN-M), Nepali Congress (NC) and Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist) (CPN-UML) held a meeting on Monday but failed to reach consensus.

The meeting was aimed at forging consensus amid major political parties to form a new government to lead Nepal's peace process to a logical conclusion, but failed, as all three parties remained hooked on their own stance.

The meeting also failed to meet the extended deadline provided by Nepali President Ram Baran Yadav to form a consensus government by Friday. President Yadav extended the deadline on July 7 with five more days considering the request of all the 25 parties in the Constitutent Assembly (CA).

After Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal resigned from his post on June 30 and remained head of the caretaker government, President Yadav had given seven days to the parliamentarian parties to form a consensus government on July 1.

"The parties could not reach the agreement on the modality of integration of UCPN-M combatants with Nepal Army or any other security forces," UCPN-M leader Dev Gurung told Xinhua. The UCPN-M and NC strongly differ on the issue of UCPN-M combatants living in various temporary cantonments across the country.
