Nepalese parliament ratified interim constitution

On January 15, 2007, the Nepalese House of Representatives adopted a draft interim constitution following its approval by the Nepalese cabinet. The interim constitution simultaneously provided for the dissolution of the current House of Representatives and the creation of an interim parliament which included 25 percent of seats held by former Maoist insurgents. The new representative body faced the tasks of drafting a permanent constitution and resolving the status of King Gyanendra and the Nepalese monarchy, which was later abolished.
