A leader of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN-M) said on Thursday that the party issued an ultimatum urging the Nepali King to leave the Narayanhiti Royal Palace in Kathmandu within four weeks.

Speaking at a program in the capital, CPN-M's second-in-command Baburam Bhattarai said, "a respectful living will be ensured for the king if the latter became ready to live as a common citizen."

Bhattarai said that the end of the monarchy will be on top of the CPN-M's priorities.

Although the complete result of the April 10 poll not coming yet, the CPN-M are clearly on the way to become the largest party in the election to the Constituent Assembly (CA) which will write a new constitution and decide the fate of the 240-year-old institution of monarchy, according to local media reports.

He also said that restructuring of the state, writing a new constitution, and achieving a rapid economic development are among the major of the CPN-M's policies.

Bhattari expressed confidence that the Nepal Army will support them with integrating its Army men into the national army.
