The strongest message to come out of a six-month research conducted by the Centre for Economic and Social Development (CESOD) is people across the country are terrified but are still holding onto their faith in a democratic system. A whopping 72.36 percent of the respondents side squarely with a democratic system and a constitutional monarchy. The research, conducted between February and July 2002, does not incorporate opinions regarding the royal move in October. About 11 percent favour a Panchayat era single-party political system, while only 9.4 percent of respondents support a people's republic proposed by the underground Maoist party.
