Former guerilla elected Nepal PM

Some reads on background and the developments on the elections of Maoist leader to prime minister of Nepal.

I think it's been a really important development that the Maoists were convinced to go into the political process, leaving the "People's War" behind. The Communists of Nepal (UML) played an important role in that process. We'll see what happens next but add S. Asia to the next hit lists by the Bush administration, neo-cons and we (U.S. peace and solidarity activists) will have to pay attention to.
