Seven Party Alliance

Seven Party Alliance

The Seven Party Alliance is a coalition of seven Nepali political parties seeking to end autocratic rule in the country. They are currently spearheading the Loktantra Andolan.

The alliance is made up of the following parties:

* Nepali Congress
* Nepali Congress (Democratic)
* Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist)
* Nepal Workers and Peasants Party
* Nepal Goodwill Party (Anandi Devi)
* United Left Front
* People's Front

These seven parties make up 194 of the 205 seats allocated in the Nepalese legislative elections, 1999, the only significant exception being the Monarchist Rashtriya Prajatantra Party. The RPP split into three factions, with one faction openly supporting the royal take-over and the two others maintaining criticism towards it.

The name "Seven Party Alliance" has always been a misnomer, since one of its members (ULF) is an alliance in itself, constisting of three parties. Moreover, the two largest members, Congress and the CPN(UML) are each much larger than the rest of the members put together.
