Is Jhalanath Khanal the next Prime Minister of Nepal?

It looks like Nepal will get its new Prime Minister soon. And it looks like it is going to be Jhalanath Khanal, who had nominated himself along with Prachanda and Ram Chandra Paudel for the post of Prime Minister, but had then lost in the first round itself. The UML and the UCPN-Maoists have come up with a secret deal after which Prachanda withdrew his nomination. Meanwhile, Ram Chandra Paudel is still refusing to withdraw his nomination, even though he lost the election for the 9th time today (the only difference being that he was standing unopposed for the second time :-)) 

So, it looks like the dirty politics will continue for sometime longer in Nepal!
