Nepal's Maoists go political

This could be a breakthrough for Nepal and transform the present shaky cease-fire into a political process:

The underground Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) is willing to be part of the parliamentary process on the condition that it be under a new constitutional order and without an ‘absolute monarchy’. An understanding to this effect has been reached between the Maoists and Nepal’s seven pro-democracy parties, said press releases on Tuesday, issued separately by Maoist supremo Prachanda and by the parties, based on a 12-point memorandum of understanding.
