Slow progress

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL -

The writer of the ar­ti­cle ‘Winds of Change’ was hope­ful that some or­der will pre­vail in Nepal af­ter the elec­tions and the na­tion will start mov­ing on the road to democ­racy. The na­tion may be mov­ing to­wards democ­racy but un­for­tu­nately at a dis­mally low speed. In fact, its jour­ney is so slow that the coun­try did not have any gov­ern­ment even two months af­ter the polls. The po­lit­i­cal par­ties in Nepal have taken a painfully long time in reach­ing a de­ci­sion on the mat­ter.

The elec­tions were held to elect new mem­bers of Nepal’s Con­stituent As­sem­bly whose main task is to write a con­sti­tu­tion for the coun­try. But given the slow start, I won­der if the new as­sem­bly will be able to dis­charge its duty.
