CPN(Unified Socialist) Chair Madhav Kumar Nepal has said that his party will join the coalition government.

In the first media conference organised by his party today after getting a letter of certificate from the Election Commission of Nepal on Wednesday evening, Chairman Nepal, who is also the former prime minister, said his party would soon join the government, adding that he was also involved in the five-party alliance.

"Our party CPN(Unified Socialist) will cooperate with all the leftist-democratic parties. We will continue to extend cooperation to the Nepali Congress, Maoist Centre and Janata Samajbadi Party-Nepal," Nepal added. He was of the view that cooperation would be continued with communist forces that were not in power.

Stating that his party would be devoted to the welfare of the country and people, Nepal argued that his party wouldn't be confined to petty interests and ill-practices.

On the occasion, he pledged to work for nationality, democratic republic and people's interests, adding that his party would run in line with the revolutionary spirit that would firmly grasp the aspirations of people and activists.

Nepal said he was one of the founding members of the CPN-UML, adding that he had established a new political party to advance Nepal's communist movement by relinquishing the malpractices seen inside the party.
