Opportunities Most inclusive Parliament in the history of the country. More women M.Ps than anywhere in South Asia. CPN (Maoists) have left the path of violence completely and are committed to democracy. But Nepal could be a Presidential republic like the U.S. or France. In the interest of India, China and the U.S. to see a stable Nepal.
