Facts in Brief
The Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal is situated in the Himalaya mountains. From 1961 Nepal was under the direct control of the royal family. Following the rise of a pro-democracy movement, a limited form of constitutional monarchy was introduced in 1990. More than 13,000 people were estimated to have been killed during a Maoist insurgency, which began in 1996 and lasted until the signing of a peace agreement between the Government and Maoist leadership in November 2006. In January 2007 an Interim Constitution was introduced, establishing an interim Parliament and replacing the King with the Prime Minister as Head of State. At elections held in April 2008, the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) became the largest party in the 601-seat Constituent Assembly. Nepal was declared a republic in May. Following the failure of successive Governments to forge consensus on the drafting of a new Constitution, the term of office of the Constituent Assembly expired in May 2012. Elections to a new Constituent Assembly were held in November 2013. In September 2015 the Constituent Assembly approved a new Constitution, which defined Nepal as a secular republic comprising seven federal provinces. Elections to a new lower chamber of parliament took place in late 2017. Kathmandu is the capital. Nepali is the official language.
