Nepal Maoists quit government

Posted by ajadhind on September 19, 2007

The CPN (Maoist) has decided to quit the government as eight-party leaders failed to forge consensus on its demands.

Maoist ministers submitted their resignation to Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala as soon as the meeting of top leaders of four major ruling allies ended in a deadlock. The leaders had been engaged in hectic parleys from early morning today.

All four Maoist ministers – Krishna Bahadur Mahara, Dev Gurung, Hisila Yami and Khadga Bishwokarma – were at Baluwatar when the top leaders’ meeting was underway. They left Baluwatar at around 12:30 pm after submitting their resignation to the Prime Minister.

Leaders and intermediaries were engaged in bilateral and multilateral discussions since last couple of days in their attempt to convince the Maoist leaders not to announce departure from the coalition government.

PM Koirala has ‘rejected’ two key Maoist demands: announcement of republic before the polls and proportional representation-based election system.

The CPN-M is organising a mass meeting this afternoon at the Open Air Theatre from where it is announcing its exit from the government and the launching of nationwide protest movement.
