A broad representation of all people of Nepal have been a main objective of the system of representation, first of the Constituent Assembly and then of the future Parliament, since the first agreements between the Maoists and the Seven Party Alliance was entered into at the end of 2005. The specific rules have been subject of controversies and the implementation of quotas for the Constituent Assembly elections 2008 represented major challenges. The rules as they were formulated did work towards more inclusiveness in 2008, but there were still groups which were left out of the Assembly. This article discusses the representation of groups of people in the Constituent Assembly, and it also suggests new ways of implementing affirmative action which could accommodate more marginalised groups and at the same time represent significant simplification for parties and election administrators. In addition some thought on the future general system of representation is presented.
