Nepal’s CA crashes after 4 years without doing its job, fresh elections on November 19

KATHMANDU: After four years of hard exercise to resolve all disputed issues through consensus, the Constituent Assembly (CA) crashed on May 27 without promulgating the new constitution.

In a televised interview, Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai announced that the Constituent Assembly, elected in 2008, exists no more and that fresh elections will be held on November 19 to elect a new Constituent Assembly.

Bhattara, who is also the Vice President of the ruling UCPN Maoist, largest party in the CA, announced the end of the CA and fresh CA polls in a live telecast to the nation on Tuesday, Monday, the 28th of the May.

“Without getting to hold discussion there, the Constituent Assembly has been brought to an end. This is a matter of great sadness,” he said, adding that we should move ahead by taking lesson from this

“Though we have been unsuccessful now, the Nepali people will adjugde appropriately. I don’t think that it is appropriate to blame anybody because we don’t have a situation to move ahead without a political agreement.”
