The fast-paced undercurrents of the country's politics have indicated that the Maoists may extend the ceasefire. The seven agitating parties have been holding talks with the Maoists. On the other side, even if the king is on a lengthy overseas visit, the vice chairmen of the ministers' council Tulsi Giri and Kirtinidhi Bista are said to have held dialogue with Maoists' point men. Since talks are on between all the forces of Nepali politics, sources say Maoists are in no mood to break the ceasefire now. The unilateral ceasefire of the Maoists comes to an end one day after the king returns from his foreign visit on 2 December. Sources also say the government is preparing to announce a unilateral ceasefire five days before the Maoists' ceasefire ends this 1 December.
