Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai inducted 11 ministers into his cabinet Saturday,two days after ministers quit as part of a negotiated effort to quell political turmoil in the country.

The move helped create a national government as proposed by a recent deal reached by four major political parties. The deal would enable the constitution writing process in the country to be completed by a May 28 deadline.

The Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist,which is still divided over whether or not to join the government,is also likely to announce its nominees on Sunday,party sources said.

Bijay Kumar Gachedar,R K Yadav,Mahendra Yadav and Hridayesh Tripathi,all from the Madhesh front; K P Sitaula and Surya Man Gurung,from the Nepali Congress; and Narayan Kaji Shrestha,Barsha Man Pun,Top Bahadur Rayamaji,Dinanath Sharma and Posta Bahadur Bogati,from the Maoist Party,were among those administered the oath of office and secrecy by Prime Minister Bhattarai in the presence of President Ram Baran Yadav.
