      Dear Friends of CJPA
      Greetings from Nepal.

      The Great Yesterday(Nov 7), Nepal introduced the peace agendas. The
      Seven-party alliance and Maoist leader sign historic agreement to end
      decade-long conflict yeaterday. The major points of agreements are as
      belows:

      Ø Peace accord to be signed by November 16
      Ø Maoist fighters to go to cantonment areas by November 21
      Ø Interim legislature comprising 330 members to be formed by
      November 26.
      Ø Interim constitution to be announced by November 26.
      Ø Current HOR and national assembly to be dissolved.
      Ø Interim government to be formed by December 1.
      Ø First constituent assembly meets in June to decide on
      monarchy.

      Recent history.
      v Two sides were observing a ceasefire for the past six months.
      v Disarming of Maoists had been a sticking point in the peace
      process.
      v Peace process hit another snag on whether future of monarchy
      should be decided through a referendum or constituent assembly to
      write a new constitution, meeting a key Maoist demand.
      v Two side agreed five months ago to from an interim parliament
      that would bring Maoists in to the political mainstream.
      v This is the third time the two sides have tried to hammer out
      a peace deal.
      v Two previous attempts, in 2001 and in 2003,failed.
      v First round of high -level talks was held on oct10,third on
      oct12 and the fourth on oct16.
      v Maoist conflict has claimed at least 12,500 lives.
