Nepal Youth Participation in Second Constituent Assembly Election

Nepal is currently undergoing extraordinarily challenging circumstances – a de-escalating national conflict, lack of security, unusual price hikes, massive human rights abuses, large number of internally displaced people, civil society organisations working under pressure and vulnerable to extortion and threats, students and youth taking up violent protests and the second Constituent Assembly (CA) election hot on the anvil. Educating youth about the democratic processes and their rights and duties in a democracy is the first and critical step in creating a culture of democracy through the promotion of democratic behavior and values among the young citizens. Ensuring youth participation and representation in the upcoming Constituent Assembly to actively document the voice of the youth will be an opportunity to prove the democratic exercise. This will have huge benefits as it will ensure the sense of ownership of the final constitution to be promulgated, by the youth.

The Y Factor of Politics

Unless the youth feel concerned and get involved in politics at all stages, we cannot expect a nation to grow. Remember, it is not good for a nation when its citizens only complain and expect someone else to fix their problems. It is considered a social disgrace if someone chooses to maintain a reserved or a neutral stand on issues. It is because many youngsters are migrating to other countries. People who believe that the political system will never change prefer to make their careers outside the country. We have to build a foundation for a prosperous future. If we have the power to bring about changes, then why not exercise that power now?

Youth on the Move

Most of youths are frustrated. If I’m a youth who’s ambitious, and believes in a scientific way of thinking, entrepreneurship, empowerment, progress and personal freedom, which party will back that? Is there a leader who represents my aspirations? Youth migration, job opportunity, peace and development are but optional issues for our leaders. And none of the true progressive Nepali youths are satisfied with this. They’re in a state of limbo, and hence, they opt to migrate.
