Nepal’s New Government. What Now?

leave a comment »

After days of Maoist obstruction, Nepal’s new, (non-Maoist, yet ostensibly communist) Prime Minister has been sworn in as head of a coalition that includes 22 parties. According to the BBC:

The 56-year-old was last week named the candidate of an alliance of 22 parties, which have 350 members in the 601-seat assembly.

The composition of the new cabinet has yet to be finalised, but the Nepali Congress, Madhesi Janadhikar Forum, Terai-Madhes Loktantrik Party and the Sadbhawana Party have said they will join the CPN.

I’m curious as to what will happen next. Will the new government bring some much needed stability to the country, or can Nepal look forward to a continuation of the tensions which have plagued it in recent months?
