CPN-UML intensifies talks on govt

Seeking to break the constitutional deadlock, the CPN-UML, the third largest party in the Constituent Assembly, held consultations with Nepali Congress, the Madhesi front and other small parties in an effort to work out a Common Minimum Programme.
The CPN-UML, which is being backed by the main opposition party Nepali Congress, has said it is close to finalising an agreement with smaller groups to form a new government.
The Joint Madhesi Democratic Front, the grouping of three ethnic Indian Madhesi parties with a strength 83 seats in the 601-member Parliament, called on Prachanda here in a bid to persuade him to stop the Maoists from disrupting the parliament. The Maoist leader told the Madhesi parties not to hurry up the process for government formation.
