Nepal  – Different Futures, Sharply Posed

Eric Ribellarsi

Amidst a great deal of uncertainty, the Prime Minister of Nepal, Khanal, has resigned. Khanal became Prime Minister after Nepal was unable to select a Prime Minister for over 7 months. Many different roads are now being posed. Some are calling for the formation of a “consensus government” (meaning consensus with Indian and U.S. intervention) and the consolidation of a bourgeois republic, with everything that would mean.

Forces among the Nepali Congress party and the UML (Nepal’s reactionary bourgeois parties) are moving for a majority government that would dissolve the Constituent Assembly and revert to Nepal’s 1990 constitution.  A line struggle among the Maoists over what road to take, including the possibility of an insurectionary road aimed at revolution, is continuing to sharpen.

What comes next remains to be seen.
