Interim Government Formed to End Political Deadlock
In early 2013, Nepal's political parties agreed on an interim government to hold elections. Chief Justice Khil Raj Regm was appointed prime minister to lead the interim government. He assumed the position on March 14, 2013.
The interim government was formed to hold Constituent Assembly elections in an effort to put an end to months of political deadlock. The elections were planned to be held by June 21, 2013, but further delays seemed likely. The election commission blamed the delays on a constitution that had no legal provisions for holding an election.
