Agreement reached


The main political parties in Nepal’s parliament agreed to extend the term of the Constituent Assembly by three months early yesterday. The previous term ran out at midnight on Saturday.

The parties came to a five point agreement, the most important point of which is to complete the first draft of the new constitution.

They also agreed to complete the fundamental elements of the peace process which includes the inclusion of Maoist rebels into the army.

As the agreement was reached, the parties were putting different interpretations on the deal, which would suggest that the crisis is far from over.
