Monthly Update – July 2012, UN Resident & Humanitarian Coordinator’s Office Nepal
Abstract:
More than two months after Nepal’s Constituent Assembly (CA) was dissolved at midnight of 27 May without promulgating a new constitution, the political and constitutional crisis in the country continues as Nepal remains without a Legislature/Parliament. The Government’s declaration to hold fresh CA elections on 22 November 2012 has been strongly opposed by the major opposition political parties, mainly the Nepali Congress (NC) and the Communist Party of Nepal – Unified Marxist Leninist (UML). As the Government could not undertake the necessary legislative and constitutional provisions allowing for elections in November, the Election Commission (EC) formally announced that it would not be possible to hold elections on such a date. The Government has formed a ministerial committee to look into new option for holding elections. Towards the end of the month, there was more discussion amongst the parties regarding elections for a CA or a parliament as a preferable option for ending the current political and constitutional crises. It is clear that the parties, whatever decision they take to expedite the way forward, will have to redouble their efforts to salvage the gains of the last four years of the CA and to complete constitution writing. #Robertpiper #RCO #RC #MonthlyUpdates #July2012
