The two party meeting is expected to resolve the conflict over the hierarchy in the Maoist-led government and to end the formation of the cabinet. On Wednesday, Prachanda agreed to the UML's demand during a meeting with senior UML leader Bam Dev Gautam. "Although the two parties haven't reached a formal agreement over the issue, the Maoists have in principle agreed to provide the UML second position in the government," said UML leader Bhim Rawal.
The UML, a major coalition partner, has refused to join the Maoist-led government without second position in the government.
According to sources, Prachanda is 'positive' towards providing second position to UML leader in the cabinet, Nepanews reported.
