Maoist MP, Ram Kumari Yadav, succumbed to burns injuries. But her death rescued the big parties from what was sure to be another disaster at the legislative parliament. For now.

 
After the abortive four rounds, the fifth voting for the prime minister was put off. The Maoist party made the request to “mourn” the death of a comrade. Others nodded in agreement. 

This has given a couple of days to the Maoists, the Nepali Congress and the UML to find what is increasingly becoming an elusive consensus.

 
But no breakthrough is likely even in the extended time.

 
As consensus, expectedly, eludes the parties, an influential Nepali Congress central member, Khum Bahadur Khadka, has dared own party to seek the dissolution of the constituent assembly. 

 
Khadka has called for fresh elections.

 
Is the country headed towards that direction? Questions have begun to circulate in key power centers.
