Official Indian view about Madhav Kumar Nepal

Ethnic Indian Madhav Nepal may become next PM

Kathmandu, May 10 (PTI) Madhav Kumar Nepal, the top CPN-UML leader with ethnic Indian origin, has emerged as the party choice to form a coalition as the president today asked the parliament to chose a prime minister to end the political deadlock in the country.
A central committee meeting of the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist), the third largest party in the Constituent Assembly, has decided to form a consensus government.

The 56-year-old veteran communist leader of ethnic Indian origin, whose forefathers came from India, could become Nepal's next prime minister, taking over from Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda.


According to a senior leader, most of the central committee members "are for proposing Nepal as the prime ministerial candidate".

"There is hardly any dispute within the party on his candidacy," he underlined.

"His name is almost final. But, in view of several past instances of other parties betraying the party, many comrades suggested not to publicize the name immediately," the leader was quoted as saying by myrepublica online.

Several leaders suggested the party not to publicise the candidates name before ascertaining that the party will get chance to lead the government, the report said. PTI
