A maoists elections campaign poster in Kathmandu. The policeforces geared up for massive riots, but none erupted. April 10th 2008 the historic Consistuent assembly elections took place in Nepal, putting an end to a centuries of monarchy. The assembly will form a new constitution and abolish the monarchy and King Gyanendras rule. The big question remains if the new maoist led government will be a positive or a negative factor in a country that recently emerged from a decade of civilwar. Photo: Christopher Olssøn.
