Policy Paper: Leftizing the Left
For more than a decade, left parties in Nepal have played an important role in politics. Moreover, there has always been a left majority. But the parties have often been bitter political adversaries and in conflict with each other. Now the two biggest competitors – the Marxist-Leninists and Maoists – have overcome their differences and united into a single party. Critics, however, complain that the unification process was badly prepared and happened without involving supporters and party cadres.
