A Review and Analysis of the 2009 Civil Society Public Submissions to the Constituent Assembly
PDF File Size: 3.57 MB | Download   
Nepal is currently undergoing an historic political transition. The first phase of the transition from 10 years of armed conflict was marked by the signing of a peace accord between the Government of Nepal and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) in November 2006 (Mangsir 2063), the issuance of an Interim Constitution (IC) in January 2007, the formation of an Interim Legislature and the entry of Maoists into the political process. The second phase of the transition saw elections for the new CA in April 2008(2064 Chaitra) which established an elected Constituent Assembly (CA)-the most diverse in Nepal’s history.
Writing a constitution is a critical part of the peace process of Nepal and a core responsibility of the Constituent Assembly (CA). Nepali constitutionalism, as in many post conflict democracies, is redefining the tradition of expert constitution making and is bringing it into the sphere of democratic participation. How the constitution is finally made, as well as what it says, matters. Process will be equally important as content for the legitimacy of the new charter. The recent extension of the CA for another year, therefore, has at least one silver lining – the chance for a sustained and targeted second CA public outreach programme that will ensure citizens’ opinions are incorporated into the new constitution.
