Report of the Secretary-General on the Request of Nepal for United Nations Assistance in Support of its Peace Process (10 July 2008)
Abstract:
The convening on 28 May of the democratically elected Constituent Assembly was a milestone in the peace process in Nepal. The Assembly is to draft a new Constitution within the next two years and will also act as the legislature during this transitional period. At the first session the Assembly members present voted by 560 votes to 4 to end the 239-year-old monarchy of Nepal and to implement a federal democratic republic. A constitutional amendment was also adopted creating the posts of President and Vice-President. The former king, Gyanendra Shah, was afforded all the rights and responsibilities of any Nepali citizen and given 15 days to vacate the Narayanhiti Palace in central Kathmandu, which he did on 11 June. #PeaceProcess #UNMIN #HumanRights
