On September 20, 2015, Nepal’s Constituent Assembly approved a new constitution, transitioning Nepal to a Federal Democratic Republic divided into seven provinces. IFES has developed a factsheet to provide an overview of how the new constitution will affect Nepal’s electoral process, including explanations of the electoral systems to be used for different elected bodies and positions, provisions to ensure representation of women and other marginalized groups, and guidelines on the delimitation of electoral constituencies.
