Nepal’s PM resigns

Pushpa Kamal Dahal,the Maoist prime minister, who was in charge of the interim government that is responsible for drafting a new constitution for Nepal, has resigned after some members of the coalition pulled out. He had called upon the chief of the army to resign for failing to integrate Maoist irregulars into the regular army, and this move has not only been strongly criticised by the non-Maoist parties, but the President refused to countenance the dismissal. It is too early to say what this means for the fragile peace process, but it is not a positive development.
