Kathmandu, Dec 24: Maoist Chairman Prachanda today said his party will rejoin the government within the next few days.
His statement comes a day after the top leaders of the governing Seven-Party Alliance finally agreed to proclaim Nepal a republic and enforce it through the first meeting of the Constituent Assembly to be elected within 15 weeks. Speaking at a programme today, Prachanda stated that his party will join the government again as yesterday's agreement made great achievements.
He also indicated that the Maoist leaders who had quit the government a few months back could rejoin since they have experience of running the ministries.
The Maoist supremo however claimed that although a republic has ushered in the country, some formalities and technicalities remained to abolish monarchy.
Stating that the Constituent Assembly elections should not be deferred again once a new date for the polls is fixed, Prachanda underscored the need to be united for nationalism and sovereignty.
