The political crisis that Nepal has been going through for the past few months might be resolved within a few days. Prakash, the General Secretary of the CPN Unity Centre, who met the prime minister this morning informed that there will be discussions between the NC, the CPN-UML, the Maoists and the CPN Unity Centre on 27 Mangshir and that the seven party's meeting will formalize the agreement on the same day.
Since the Maoists will be attending the meeting in Janakpur on 26 Mangshir, the discussion between the NC, CPN-UML and the Maoists will only take place on the 27th of Mangshir. Sources say that the NC, the CPN-UML and the Maoists have already reached a formal agreement on the interim parliament fully committing to the issue about republic and including it on the constitution while they have come to an informal understanding on the proportional representation in the constitutional assembly polls and increasing the numbers of the members of the constituent assembly.
