Chitwan, February 13

CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal says he will be elected the prime minister of the country again, sooner or later.

Dahal’s statement has been looked at curiously as the two major communist parties of the country–the CPN-UML and the Maoist Centre–are said to have forged an agreement on the basis of a power sharing deal between them.

The Maoist Centre chief hints that the two parties may choose to share the premiership between the leaders of two parties for 2.5 years each.

Dahal, however, says the two parties are yet to finalise the deal, but it is certain that he will be the PM once again.

Speaking at a function in his home district of Chitwan today, Dahal was responding to a wish of Nepali Congress representative for his next premiership.
