Kathmandu, Oct 5 (ANI): Unified CPN (Maoist) Vice Chairman Dr. Baburam Bhattarai on Monday said Nepal cannot get rid of problems unless the new government is formed under the Maoist leadership.

Speaking at a press meet here, Bhattarai said, "The country cannot get rid of problems unless the government is formed under Maoists and for that the President's move must be rectified and civilian supremacy must be established.

"The basic conditions for this are rectification of the President's move to reinstate the then army chief sacked, establishment of civilian supremacy, and its mention in the Constitution, Kantipur quoted him as, saying.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal, Maoist chairman Prachanda, UML chairman Jhalanath Khanal and Nepali Congress president Girija Prasad Koirala met at the tea reception organized by CPN-UML at their party office.

Talking to reporters, chiefs of the Unified CPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress and CPN (UML) said they were hopeful of a breakthrough, ending the deadlock in the Parliament, before the Dashain recess is over.

Koirala said the deadlock would be resolved before the next session of the Legislature-Parliament by forming a high-level political mechanism.

Admitting that differences and factionalism have gripped all the parties, Koirala claimed that the high-level political mechanism would resolve the current political complexity.

Informing that a joint meeting of the senior leaders of three major parties will try to resolve the protracted political impasse, Koirala expressed his hope that the House deadlock will end.

Prachanda said that an agreement to form a high-level mechanism has been forged in principle and that only its implementation is yet to be done.

"We are also in favour of setting up a high level mechanism. But the formation is delayed because we don't want to see it plunged into crisis immediately after its formation," he added.

"We want the current differences among parties be addressed through a new understanding and the mechanism would be formed after the stalemate is resolved," he said

However, Madhav Kumar Nepal said that the misunderstandings among parties should be ended.

"We should not create any delay in the statute drafting," he added. (ANI)
