This is a good, fairly neutral assessment, but it is disappointing that no commentator seems to be willing to express a critical opinion of Xanana Gusmao's role in all this. Reading between the lines, it seems obvious that if Xanana had stepped back, in the interest of national unity, Fretilin would have been agreeable to a 'neutral' PM. If Alkatiri could step down in 2006, why shouldn't Gusmao in 2007?
