Row In the Mountains on Who Should Attend SAARC.
Heated exchanges of words took place in the infant democracy of Nepal in the mountains regarding the eligibility of a caretaker prime minister representing Nepal. Nepal one of the newest democracies in the world after the king was removed under sweeping reforms that the country underwent is still in the process of transforming its institutions to adjust to the new system of government.
Things however got settled once the Prime Minister of Nepal Girija Prasad Koirala apologized to the coalition for not consulting them before attending the SAARC Summit in Colombo. There was further criticism over the fact that Koirala’s daughter (a minister without a portfolio) accompanied the delegation.
While this shows how fragile the Nepalese government is the speed of reform in the country is still fast. The countries former opposition has put down their weapons and started to participate in politics and building their nation. Nepal is facing alot of hurdles in managing its economy under rapidly increasing cost of energy.
