The Nepalese government asked parliament on Monday to extend the term of the nation's constituent assembly by one year ahead of an imminent deadline for drawing up a new Constitution.
The current term of the assembly expires May 28.
The assembly has been unable to promulgate a new Constitution by this deadline, as its work has been hindered by a power struggle that started after former Maoist rebels quit the government last May.
The assembly was elected in 2008 as part of a peace process with the Maoists.
The term extension bill needs a two-thirds vote in parliament for approval. [...]
A new Constitution for Nepal with the commies running around. Civil war everywhere.
