Speaker of Nepali Interim Parliament Subash Nemwang expressed optimism that a negotiated settlement could be reached regarding demands of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN-M), local leading media group's website Nepalnews reported Friday.

Nemwang told reporters Friday he was hopeful of a compromise after meeting with CPN-M chairman Prachanda at the latter's residence in Nayabazar in Kathmandu on Friday morning.

Speaker Nemwang met with Prachanda ahead of crucial special session of the parliament, which is set to resume on Oct. 29. The CPN-M put forth proposals demanding republic declaration through the Interim Parliament and fully proportional representation election system at the parliament. The special session was summoned on Oct. 11 to discuss the CPN-M motions.

In case, the parties fail to reach compromise on CPN-M demands, the parliament could witness voting to decide the matter on Oct. 29. Nepali Congress, the largest party in the house with more than one-third of the total 320 seats, is expected to vote against the CPN-M motions which needs two-thirds majority for approval.

Talking to reporters on Friday morning, Prachanda said efforts are still being made to reach a compromise to break the political deadlock.
