Although Nepal has seen so many dramatic movements in politics with elections of first woman president, woman speaker of Legislature Parliament and new face of vice president, Nepal’s new constitution, which is in the process of implementation, has completed its first step. Elections have been held for all constitutional heads. As all forces, leftists and rightists, share the constitutional posts among them, Nepali Congress party has been isolated. This will further complicate the situation in the future. Since Nepali Congress holds over 220 seats, the amendment of the new constitution and its full implementation will be impossible without its support. Since the government and Madheshi agitators are yet to make any breakthrough, the political turbulence in the south will create more trouble in the coming days. As the disruption of the border points by agitators and a kind of India’s “undeclared blockade” continue, the country is at the risk of a major humanitarian crisis. With the continued deadlock and growing political differences between the ruling and opposition parties with the disgruntled Madheshis, Nepal’s coming days will be more difficult to predict. As usual Nepal has been passing through a new phase of political turmoil, we have decided to take up the earthquake victims and reconstruction as our cover story. Disruption of supplies and political instability have already made the life of the victims of earthquake more miserable. Along with our regular columns, we look at the various aspects of earthquake victims and economic implications. As Nepal is celebrating the festival of lights, New Spotlight family wishes Happy Dipawali, Nepal Sambat New Year and Chhath.
