Federal System - Nepal Participatory Constitution Building Booklet Series No. 2
PDF File Size: 272 KB | Download   
Nepal has been governed in a unitary, centralized system for centuries. So far, democratization has not yet led to a significant change in the basic set-up in how the country is organized. Introducing a federal structure will represent a
fundamental departure from that legacy.
Traditionally, the central government governed the whole of the country as a single unit. Although the country has been divided into development regions, zones, and districts, they all are under the sole authority of the central government. These units do not enjoy an independent or autonomous status.
The region and zone levels are not elected. Nor do they have any rights of their own, even though local bodies are designed as legal personalities. Powers are delegated to these existing units by the centre. They do not inherently lie with 6 Federal System them based on some form of constitutional guarantee. The central government can increase, decrease or revoke the powers of the regions, zones and districts.
