Nepal’s supreme court has ordered that the govt should complete the nation’s long-awaited new constitution by this sunday. The choice could power new elections if a political road-bock is not broken.
The supreme Court denied the administration’s offer for a three-month expansion for the Constituent Assembly.
Judge Khila Raj Regmi issued the order thursday in reaction to three writs registered against the government’s strategy to expansion of the assembly. It was chosen in 2008 with a two-year phrase, which has already been prolonged four periods.
The assembly is unlikely to complete the constitution by Weekend. The governmental events are deadlocked on thorny concerns such as labeling of the new states.
Also Thursday, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appealed to Nepali political parties “to make immediate initiatives to retain the constitution-making procedure and the profits they have made thus far,” U.N. spokesperson Martin Nesirky said in New york.
