Three Maoist conditions to end deadlock

By Bhola B Rana

Kathmandu, 24 Nov: Maoist Vice-chairman Dr Baburam Bhattarai made three demands to end the current political impasse including a joint resolution in parliament to correct the reinstatement of sacked Army Chief Gen Rukmangud Katawal.
‘The bottom line of our demand is that the president has violated the constitution.
“So that is why a way should be found out, whereby that move of the president should corrected so that there is no wrong precedent set.
“Civilian supremacy or the democratic control of the armed forces should be established in the country,” Dr Bhattarai told The Kathmandu Post.
Katawal was sacked by Maoists unilaterally in a coalition government without discussion in parliament and appointed by the prime minister and not the president.
The president, who appoints the chief on the recommendation of the government, was only informed of the decision.
Dr Bhattarai called for a joint resolution to ‘correct the move of the president”
H also called for a joint mechanism to implement a comprehensive peace accord (CPA) to draft a new constitution and implement the peace process, and a ‘national unity government’.
He said a national government should be formed under Maoists, the largest party in parliament, but was ready to compromise on the demand.
“Let any government be formed, which should be guarantee the implementation of the CPA and the formation of a few constitution, If that happens then we may remain outside the government and cooperate,
The UCPN Maoist vice-chairman demanded the ‘democratization; of Nepal Army whatever the word means in the vague peace agreement between seven parties and Maoists.
Election of the army chief and officers?
Western diplomats in the capital in a recent statement described ‘democratization’ as the reorganization of the state army.
In reply to a question what democratization meant, Dr Bhattarai also said,” And since we have entered into the democratic republican era, the size and the nature of the army should be worked out in view if the geopolitical situation, And thirdly the army should be inclusive.”
