The Communist Party of Nepal ( Maoist) (CPN-M) senior leader Babu Ram Bhattarai has said his party would quit the Interim Parliament if the special session of the parliament on Oct. 29 failed to approve his party's proposal, The Himalayan Times reported Wednesday.

Bhattarai made the remarks Tuesday at a press conference in Nuwakot district, bordering capital Kathmandu in the north.

Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala summoned special session of the Interim Parliament to discuss the motions filed by CPN-M on Oct. 11. There will be another sitting of the special session on Oct. 29.

The motions demand declaring Nepal a republic through the Interim Parliament and adopting full proportional representation electoral system in the Constituent Assembly elections.

CPN-M ministers resigned from the Interim Government on Sept. 18, claiming the two demands were not met, while CPN-M members remained in the parliament.

Bhattarai said that "the same old parliamentary parties" (other Nepali political parties) and their leaders had failed to work in accordance with the mandate of last April's People's Movement which ended King Gyanendra's direct rule.
