Kathmandu: In a land­mark step to cul­mi­nate a pro­longed tran­si­tion af­ter Nepal be­came re­pub­lic in 2008, the coun­try’s Con­stituent Assem­bly on Wed­nes­day en­dorsed a much-awaited new con­sti­tu­tion of Nepal. The con­sti­tu­tion-mak­ing body of Nepal en­dorsed the con­sti­tu­tion bill with an over­whelm­ing two-thirds ma­jor­ity on Wed­nes­day night. The latest progress on con­sti­tu­tion pro­mul­ga­tion has marked a ma­jor step for­ward for democ­racy in Nepal, pro­vid­ing the Nepali peo­ple a great hope for a sta­ble and pros­per­ous coun­try which faced a dev­as­tat­ing earth­quake on April 25 and en­su­ing af­ter­shocks, po­lit­i­cal observers said.
