Possible progress on talks to bring the government back together in Nepal

The good point to this article is the main parties in Nepal are negotiating. This is a positive sign that they are willing to talk and possibly come to an agreement to end the stalemate that has taken place since the Unified Communist Party Nepal (Maoist) resigned more than a year ago over control of the nation’s military.

Nepali Congress (NC) and Communist Party Nepal (United Marxist Leninist), two largest allies of the government that recently stepped down, have decided to ask the main opposition the Unified Communist Party Nepal (Maoist) to implement their commitment for successful completion of the peace process.

A meeting of the top leaders of the two parties held at UML parliamentary party office Singha Durbar, Sunday decided to ask the Maoists to implement the first point of the three-point signed by the three parties on May 28.
The three-point agreement signed at night of May 28 for the extension of the Constituent Assembly, due to expire the same day, includes a commitment from the signatories to work together for completion of peace process and constituting drafting, extension of CA term and resignation of the Prime Minister. The second and the third point have already been implemented with PM Nepal resigning on Wednesday. NC and UML have been asking the Maoists to come clear on army integration, dismantle the para-military structure of its youth wing the Young Communist League (YCL) and return the properties seized during conflict.
