University of Hong Kong honorary professor Yash Ghai, who has been working with non-governmental and political groups on constitutional change in Nepal for a number of years, said a constituent assembly involving 'basically all interest groups' was the best way forward for the country now. Professor Ghai, who is preparing a paper for the groups on the modalities of a constituent assembly, met political parties, civil society groups, and military officers and ministers of the king during his visits to Nepal two years ago. 'I remember visiting Parliament before its dissolution and there were hardly any people from the lower caste or indigenous populations ... it was not at all representative,' he said. 'If this is going to be a real process, they need to find a forum in which all groups are represented.' Professor Ghai, who is also the United Nations Special Representative to Cambodia and involved with the constitutional processes in Iraq, said leaders of such groups needed to develop a consensus on an agenda upon which the work of the constituent assembly ought to be based.
