In a move that could end the present political impasse, all three major political parties in Nepal on Thursday reiterated their commitment to the peace process and formulation of the new constitution on time.

The commitment expressed by leaders of the ruling Nepali Congress and Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist Leninist) and the opposition Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) at a programme organised by a private TV channel is seen as a big breakthrough.

Nepal has been witnessing a political impasse since May, when the Maoist-led government stepped down over the President’s refusal to remove the Army chief.
