Nepal’s new constitution was to have been implemented by last week, with clauses allowing for same-sex marriage. But political instability and strife has led to a delay. (The Hindu)
Nepal’s political deadlock continues even after three major political parties made an agreement on Friday night to move ahead with consensus, extending the tenure of the Constituent Assembly.
The three parties had made a last-minute agreement on Friday to save the Constituent Assembly, which was to expire that night.
The Constituent Assembly has now one more year to finish the task of writing the Constitution which could not be completed in the last two years.
