Talking to BBC Nepali Service, Thursday, Dr. Baburam Bhattarai said that being the largest party, the Maoists deserve the positions of Prime Minister and President
He reasoned that in the transitional phase both positions should go to one party to avoid creation of parallel power centers.
He also revealed that his party was willing to stay out of power if others do not agree to let them have both positions.
As per the latest political understanding, the parties have created the position of executive prime minister and 'constitutional' president.
The president has been assigned the responsibility of working as per the recommendation of the prime minister. The president will also be the commander of chief of the national army.
