Political Protests in Nepal
The first Constituent Assembly (CA) was elected in 2008 but the parties never came to a consensus — every party had their own agenda to drive through the government.
Another CA was elected in November 2013, but the story continues on the same page. Her people were tired of waiting for the constitution to materialise, taking to the streets to protest and force the CA to show its hand instead.
Little did the country find out: It took a 7.8-magnitude earthquake to jolt everyone to come together, and bring Nepal a step forward.
On 8 June 2016, the parties agreed on Nepal’s new constitution.
These were the scenes before the earthquake, photographed in early 2015.
