Trial-and-error



"The roots of the present constitutional crisis date back to the recommendation to postpone parliamentary polls by major political parties to then premier Sher Bahadur Deuba. That was a constitutional error. The royal move of 4 October to assume executive powers, too, is an unconstitutional move.

All the activities undertaken ever since have been unconstitutional. In fact the present crisis is not a constitutional one. It is an outcome of the failure of the political forces to manage political problems within the sphere of the constitution. Now, only a political solution can be sought to resolve the present crisis. In order to make the constitution functional, political parties should go to the polls.

The constitutional process can resume only after a new government is formed. The new parliament can also work as the 'constituent assembly'. The political parties can approach the matter of a constitutional amendment as well. There has been an external influence behind every constitutional upheaval in Nepal and our political leaders over the last 12 years failed to mange these elements diplomatically. If they don't take lessons from such experiences we can't expect reforms in the constitutional process."
