On May 27, 2012, the Constitutent Assembly (CA) of Nepal was abruptly dissolved without it delivering on its mandate of framing a new constitution following a complete breakdown of political consensus over some issues involved in restructuring of the State.

Since then, amidst chaos and demonstratins, Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai has announced the holding of fresh polls for the CA on November 22 of this ytear. The question remains: How far can the eections bridge the political and constitutional void that is pushing Nepal towards the edge?

This paper examines Nepal's political stakeholders, their attitudes and orientations, to explore possible trajectories in the nation's future political landscape.
