Nepalese Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai reconfirmed he will step down immediately after a constitution is agreed to by all parties to be elected to a new Constituent Assembly.

 

 

Nepal's political process has been in deep freeze since May when the last Assembly was dissolved by the High Court because it couldn't agree a constitution and a new government structure.

 

 

The dissolution ended four years of political intrigue and wrangling by Assembly members.

 

 

Nepal's last Assembly emerged as part of a peace agreement that ended a civil war between Maoist rebels and monarchists in 2006.

 

 

Around 15,000 people were killed and up to 150,000 people displaced during the decade-long civil war in which the Maoist's Communist Party of Nepal wanted to overthrow the monarchy and set up a republic.
