Politics is a game of endless possibilities. More so in Nepal where the game of power has got only to do with perks, privileges and the spoils of power.
In a major twist of events, the five-party ruling alliance broke barely a couple of hours before the presidential deadline of December 25, 5pm ended and CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda got what he wanted: the first two years of prime ministership, which was the most contentious issue between him and Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba.
