In a joint statement issued on conclusion of the meeting on Monday top leaders of the four ruling parties, Nepali Congress president and Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’, CPN (Unified Socialist) Chair Madhav Kumar Nepal and Rashtriya Janamorcha vice-president Durga Paudel have made remarks that the poll results have pointed at the need for moving ahead forging mutual understanding and cooperation.

It was the first joint meeting of the ruling alliance after the recently held HoR and PA elections. “It is necessary to continue the present coalition to face the challenges before the country,” read the statement.

The political parties have pledged to move forward with additional solidarity respecting people’s spirit and confidence and keeping the welfare of the country and the people in the centre.

“There is a need to give continuity to the alliance keeping in view the present political challenges facing the country,” says the joint statement. The ruling five party alliance has so far won 90 seats

under direct voting system. After the seat allocation under proportionate voting the strength of the ruling alliance is likely to reach 136, which is two seats short of simple majority required to form new government. Thus, support from independent candidates or from other smaller parties will be essential to form the new government under the leadership of the alliance.
