Nepal: Coalition Government Finally Moving Amendments to Constitution: Update No. 323

Note No. 754                                 Dated 26-Nov-2015
 
By Dr.  S.Chandrasekharan.
 
The Coalition Government led by K.P. Oli has finally decided to move amendments to constitution.  These relate to two of the three major issues that had led to the present agitation.  These amendments were suggested by the former Sushil Koirala led government but held in abeyance for over a month for reasons best known to them.

At last, the Koirala Government appears to have realised the seriousness of the situation.  The top three leaders who in the words of their own Baburam Bhattarai had transformed themselves into a “ruling class” met at Baluwatar yesterday and decided to withdraw the army to its barracks, provided the protests are peaceful.

I had always maintained that without solving the contentious issue of the delineation of provinces, the drafting of the new constitution cannot be completed.  This was the most serious issue affecting the Madhesi and the Janajathi groups and some solution should have been found before the final draft copy was handed over to the Speaker.
