Nepal Politics: Finally, a New Agreement?

The CA elections under the mixed electoral system:
60 percent of the 601-member CA will be elected under the proportional representation system and rest under first-past-the-post system.

A conference of the civil society will be organized to save face of the Maoists.

A steering committee will be formed to run the government, who will lead the body remains undecided. Maoists are demanding that they be give the leadership of the committee.

The news is that the top leaders of the three major parties of the Seven-Party Alliance (SPA) have finalised the draft prepared by a taskforce (of SPA representatives) to evolve a 20-point agreement to address major contentious issues, including the electoral system for the Constituent Assembly (CA) elections. Prime Minister and the Nepali Congress (NC) President Girija Prasad Koirala, CPN-UML General Secretary Madhav Kumar Nepal and CPN Maoist Chairman Prachanda had met at the PM’s official residence at Baluwatar today morning to find an outlet to the festering political predicaments. The three leaders have also agreed to express commitment for a republican order in the interim constitution, which is to be endorsed by the elected CA.

They have also agreed to fix a new date to hold the twice-deferred CA elections by mid-April 2008 and to set up a steering committee to run the government, ekantipur reports citing unnamed sources. The major parties have also agreed on reallocation of the ministries, management of Maoist army, including those who were disqualified in the second stage of the verification, stepping up efforts to improve the condition of the Maoist cantonments, give immediate relief to the victims of the conflict and to find the whereabouts of the disappeared people. The meeting of the top SPA leaders has been scheduled for Sunday to give final touches to the agreement. (detail)

  3. The constitution seems like a mere document of seven party agreement. Even in the preamble, it is said it is for seven parties.Any thing can be done with the agreement of the seven parties.

    Seven parties have agreed to remove the provisions on monarchy mentioned in Article 169 of interim constitution and state Nepal a democratic republic on condition to implement it from the first sitting of constituent assembly.

    Whoever comes to power after election,no matter who is President,, it wont be politics that will determine their longivity. Unless present rulers starts thinking of development today, it wo’nt matter who is in power. It wo’nt matter whether we are republic or monarchy nothing will really matter.

  4. I support wakeup_Newars_of KTM. More killing will bring conflict to full scale, and henceforth, the solution.

    So lets kill.

    After lot of killings of innocents, some of us can also later join so called “Nepali Army”. The more you can kill the higher will be your ranking in all aspects of life in both in politics and in army.

  5. Predictions for 2008 the debate over parliamentary versus presidential system of governance is going to be
    the focus of intellectual exchanges, civil- military relations will be scrutinised closely by international-researchers, and hexte’s mantra will be ‘system of governance’. With such weighty issues to talk about, there is no time to actually anything.

  6. The NC is under tremendous pressure from royalists in the ranks who have rejected declaring a republic before elections, and have even threatened to mutiny if the priminister goes ahead. The group consists mainly of conservative trans-Karnali politicians.
