After a marathon internal debate, the CPN-UML has finally agreed to form an election government headed by Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi.
A meeting of the party's central committee (CC) approved the decision of the standing committee, which was organised in the middle of the CC meeting, Saturday evening. The UML standing committee met after the CC was clearly divided and unlikely to take a decision.
According to UML vice chairman Bam Dev Gautam, the party has some conditions for CJ-led government, which will be presented to the parties.
Leaders of the UCPN (M), NC and Madhesi Front leaders were already in Shital Niwas waiting for the UML decision and to "decisive talks". A meeting of the four parties later agreed to form the CJ-led election government. nepalnews.com
