Leaders of the three major political parties in Nepal met on Wednesday to find a way out of the ongoing political deadlock in the Himalayan nation.
Senior leaders from the ruling Communist Party of Nepal-United Maoist Leninist and Nepali Congress as well as the Unified Communist Party of Nepal, the biggest party in parliament, held discussions for nearly two hours to find a consensus to end the impasse.
While no solution was arrived at, they decided to meet again on Thursday and formed a three-member committee to try and formulate a common agenda before the next round of discussions.
The political situation in Nepal has been in doldrums since May when the Maoist-led government stepped down and started a nationwide movement to restore ‘civilian supremacy’.
