Mission Reviews - Nepal
Abstract:
Initially slated for June 2007, elections for Nepal’s constituent assembly were postponed twice, in part as a consequence of challenges to the peace process from marginalized groups, including populations in the Terai region of Nepal bordering on India, but took place on 10 April 2008. The Maoists emerged as the strongest party in the constituent assembly, with 240 out of 601 seats. After a protracted period of political wrangling, Ram Baran Yadav of the Nepal Congress party was installed as the country’s first president and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, the Maoist leader more commonly known as Prachanda, as prime minister. In May 2009, however, an attempt by Prachanda to dismiss the army chief precipitated a political crisis and the Maoists’ departure from government. A prolonged political impasse then ensued, greatly complicating UNMIN’s role.
