UCPN (Maoist) To field candidate for New Prime Minister

Maoist Information and Communications Minister Krishna Bahadur Mahara told the media after consultations among top party leaders Friday that his party would put up a candidate in the election to choose a successor to caretaker Maoist premier Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda.
Just nine months after Nepal’s newly elected constituent assembly went to the polls to overwhelmingly elect Prachanda as the first prime minister of the new republic, it would undergo the same exercise again Saturday to appoint a new executive.

it seems that the maoists are truly commited to the 'peace process', and will abide by the democratic laws and values, ie bourgeois law. i think the nepali revolution is over.

You need to appreciate strategic firmess and tactical flexibility and the fluidity of struggle between electoralism and war - if you work with dogmatic conceptions of struggle you will never understand the Nepalese Maoists
