Congratulations, excellent news.
“Madan Bhandari, who was then leader of the party, was killed in a car accident in 1993. The circumstances surrounding the accident remain unexplained.”

There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know.

RE: Nepalese Parliament Elects First Female President
“A communist politician who has long campaigned for women’s rights has become Nepal’s first female president. Bidhya Devi Bhandari is deputy leader of the ruling Communist party and campaigned to secure women’s rights under the new constitution.”
Demonstrating what Communism is all about.
In political and social sciences, communism (from Latin communis – common, universal) is a social, political, and economic ideology and movement whose ultimate goal is the establishment of the communist society, which is a socioeconomic order structured upon the common ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes, money,and the state.
Will the Paras in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho ever achieve that, given the dominance and hegemony of Sinhala Buddhism, Hinduism and the infiltration by the Wahhabis?

Good for Nepal which has also had minority community heads of state.
Sri Lanka may have the first woman Prime Minister but has never had a Tamil or Muslim PM or President and it is not because there are no talented and qualified Tamils, but due to RACIAL AND ETHNIC DISCRIMINATION in the POLITICAL CULTURE where racism and ethno-religious outbidding is used to win votes.
Funnily enough the Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore is of Ceylon Tamil descent- Tharman Shanmugratnam. Singapore beats Sri Lanka hollow!
Today in Sri Lanka corrupt politicians also run a gun culture and are issued guns. This must stop because politicians are the worst law breakers and promote racism and violence..

The Sri lank case is different of democratic revolution was led by Anglo-Saxon favour Comprador bourgeoisies classes of UNP leaders who had been tested by Her Queen of British Empire.
UNP leaders were more or less look after the British vital interest ,not that interest of political and economic ours sovereignty of Ceylon in 1948.
There was no tit for tat struggle for won freedom and an Indepanadnace our nation by comprador class of UNP leadership. Our independent and sovereignty still challenge by Tamils and Muslims for separatism against unity of country.
Such country politics are different from Nepal.
