View full report

The formation of the Constituent Assembly was an historic moment for Nepal, the result of a long struggle and many sacrifices by the Nepalese people. The main aim of Nepal’s democratic movement (past and present) is to restructure the state by eliminating all remnants of feudalism and the patriarchal system. The main objective of the women’s movement in Nepal is women’s liberation and national liberation. The Constituent Assembly will have to deliver a constitution to the people of Nepal in line with these expectations. Everyone must be devoted to the country and its people, putting aside personal and party interests. National unity is the need of the day. Peace, a new constitution and sustainable development are only possible through national unity.
