I found your page through Zafar Saleem Bangash's Page. It seems we share some common interests so I wanted to make my introduction. I'm Chris from New Orleans. I'm studying Comparative legal systems at Tulane Law School and am very interested in Human Rights and Mediation and Negotiation. Given our common interests it would be good to start communication so we can refer to each other for advice in the future. Please take a minute to view my page and leave a message if you like.
Recent Political and Security Developments of Nepal
1. The nearly 5-month long political impasse caused by the Communist Party of Nepal,
Maoist’s (CPN/M) preconditions for the constituent assembly (CA) elections—immediate declaration of a republic and a fully proportional electoral system—was resolved through a compromise on 23 December 2007. The seven party alliance (SPA),2 including the CPN/M, agreed on declaring a federal democratic republic through the interim parliament and having it ratified by the first meeting of the CA once elected, and adopting a slightly modified mixed electoral system,3 as part of a broader 23-point agreement. subsequently, the interim parliament unanimously passed an amendment to the interim constitution (the third since it was passed in January 2007), embodying these compromises, and the CPN/M rejoined the interim government on 30 December (nearly 4 months after they withdrew from it to press for the above demands) assuming their previous ministerial portfolios.4 The SPA also agreed to hold the CA elections, which had been deferred twice since June 2007,5 by mid-April 2008.
2. These developments indicate the SPA’s renewed commitment to advancing the stalled peace process. The looming uncertainty of the CA elections—a key milestone in the peace process—also appears to have ended, though the continuing agitation in the Terai (the lowlands bordering India) remains a major risk to the elections and the peace process more generally. While the upsurge of communal violence since September 2007 has subsided, parts of the Terai remain disturbed by sporadic bandhs (general strikes) and other forms of protest, including clashes between different Terai-based groups disgruntled at the first (March 2007) amendment to the interim constitution and the alleged lack of implementation of the subsequent agreements with government to address the longstanding social and political exclusion of Madhesis (people of Terai origin). These groups allege that the amendment of 28 Decemberalso ignores their grievances.
3. The Terai unrest, which surfaced in early 2007, has been lingering partly due to the
Preoccupation of the interim government and the SPA with the CPN/M-imposed preconditions for the CA elections and the resulting intra and inter-party rows. The agreement of 23 December is therefore expected to also facilitate a consensus approach for resolving the Terai issue. Another more recent development that could help ease tensions in the Terai and facilitate a peaceful solution acceptable to all sides, creating a more conducive environment for the CA elections, is the formation of a new Terai-based party. On 28 December, the Terai-Madhesh Loktantrik Party was formed under the leadership of a well-respected Nepali Congress leader who together with a number of other mainstream political party leaders resigned from their respective parties and the interim parliament to take up the cause of the Terai movement. While the movement can be expected to gain momentum, shored up by the new political setting,
it is likely to be peaceful given the democratic credentials of the party leaders. The arty’s main agenda is to bring the Terai groups together for a peaceful movement in the interest of the region and could provide more credible leadership there, the lack of which has partly been responsible for the communal violence and poor law and order situation in the region.
