Given that Nepal is a nation of unity in diversity between its different ethnic and religious groups, as well as our plaid exercise of democracy over the past 15 years, it is clear that we must pursue the monarchy as a symbol of unity and stability. Overall, this agreement offers sufficient reasons to move forward to achieve our dear goal of achieving a lasting peace and a functioning democracy. Nevertheless, it appears to contain two controversial elements: UN surveillance of the RNA and Maoist militia during elections and parliamentary elections. Let us remember that the RNA was initially mobilized to contain destructive and terrorist activities. It is illogical to put the Maoist militia and the RNA on an equal footing, because one is a rebellious cloth day outfit that works to oust a democratic terrorist-style regime and the other an authorized guardian of national security. With regard to the Assembly`s inquiry, which seems to be a meeting place, it is important that this is also acceptable to the king. Given the silent acceptance of the constitutional monarchy, it would be reasonable to expect that the king would also be accessible to the prospects of a constituent assembly that would draw up the new Constitution if constitutional monarchy and multi-party democracy were considered fundamental and inalienable. The Maoists still believe that the best way to resolve the conflict is to organize a political conference of the democratic forces and to form, on the basis of their results, a transitional government that would hold elections for the Constituent Assembly. The elections will be held under the observation of the United Nations, which will also monitor the activities of the Maoist military wing as well as those of the Royal Nepalese Army (RNA). The Maoists are committed to respecting the values of human rights, multi-party democracy, civil liberties and the rule of law, and are also committed to creating an environment conducive to the safe return of all political workers and displaced persons over the ten-year period.
On 22 November 2005, Prachanda and the Alliance of Seven published a “12-point agreement” expressing areas of convergence between the CPN (M) and the parties that had won a large majority in the last parliamentary elections in 1999. In particular, the document established that King Gyanendra`s dictatorial monarchy was the main obstacle to progress in Nepal. She also said that the Maoists were committed to human rights and press freedom and to a multi-party government system.
