Resident Coordinator’s Annual Report 2012 - Brief Description of Major Developments
PDF File Size: 151 KB | Download   
As in the previous years, the UN Country Team (UNCT) in Nepal has needed to continue adjusting to the uncertainties and challenges resulting from Nepal’s complex transition process. 2012 witnessed a major setback in Nepal’s political transition when the term of the Constituent Assembly (CA), elected in 2008, to write a new constitution and extended four times, finally ‘expired’ on May 27 without completing its task. The CA had voted itself repeated extensions to its original two-year mandate in 2010 and 2011; however, this time, following a Supreme Court ruling that no further extensions would be lawful, the CA was dissolved.Nepal has been without a Parliament since. The design of Nepal’s new federal structure was the principal issue on which constitutional negotiations failed. The final weeks of the CA’s term were dominated by this issue and featured tense, occasionally violent protests in different parts of the country, including in Kathmandu. Nevertheless, the proposals for Nepal’s federal system that had been put forward for negotiation between the parties were more balanced than much of the public debate that raged around them. Overall, the federalism debate exposed ongoing ethnic grievances and anxieties in Nepali society, and these contentious issues are expected to return to the fore during future elections or whenever constitution drafting resumes. In the aftermath of the CA’s dissolution, the short-term calculations of various political forces, and the dynamic which the federal debate created towards polarization, carried considerable risks. Nepal now faces the challenge of having to re-establish a process that enables understanding between all groups and balances the sensitive treatment of diverse identities with the rights of the individual and the need for national unity.
