Nepal: Elusive Democracy and Uncertain Political System
AbstractPersistence and breakdowns of democracy are the dominant features of Nepali politics.Democracy continues to be attractive amidst setbacks and discontinuity. So it remains perennially elusive, despite having undergone democratic upheavals. Some significant variables such as ideology, essence of representativeness, the leadership role, parties’ backgrounds and orientations, constraints of tradition and history, and elite behaviours have been identified for making changes possible as well as showing caveats for democratic development. The system building and system maintenance is examined along with some important subsidiary agencies – bureaucracy and security. The role of media becomes important in democratic process, so a passing reference would be made about media. [NCCS articles]. URL:[http://www.nccs.org.np/images/booklrb/lrbaral.pdf].
