KATHMANDU: A taskforce meeting comprising Unified CPN Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Nepali Congress leader Krishna Prasad Sitoula, CPN UML senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal and UDMF Chairman Bijaya Kumar Gachhar has inched closer to consensus on the ongoing political deadlock.
NC and UML will join the government under the leadership of Dr Baburam Bhattarai until May 27 – the deadline of promulgation of the new constitution, a source privy to the meeting said.
It is learnt that the taskforce is inching closer to consensus which will sort the issue of the formation of a national consensus government as well as the prickly issues – forms of governance and federalism - related to constitution drafting.
However, the taskforce is yet to forge a consensus on whether a new government will be formed through dissolution of the current government or through the reformation of it.
Opposition parties NC and CPN UML have warned of no-confidence motion against the incumbent government unless a consensus on the formation of a national unity government is forged by this evening.
