Political coalition change highly unlikely: UML secy Gyawali

KATHMANDU: CPN-UML Secretary Pradeep Kumar Gyawali has said that the party is not seeking alternatives to CPN Maoist Centre (MC) for formation of the new government.

Responding to rumours doing rounds about UML dropping MC and forging alliance with the Madhes based parties, Gywali told THT Online that they are what they are- rumours and fabricated.

"A change in political coalition is unlikely."

Meanwhile, talking about the recent visit of Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, the UML secretary said, "I think that the Indian government wants to give a message of fresh start and review its policy on Nepal."

"As far as I understand, they want to co-work with the new government on bilateral relations," said Gyawali.

As the largest party to be elected to the Federal Parliament, it is expected that CPN-UML will soon form the first elected government after promulgation of Constitution of Nepal, 2072.
