The following are some of the particularly important options or mechanisms for addressing potential conflict between the centre and states, and between states and local governments. Without a decision of federal state, neither the writing of constitution nor the integration of the Maoist Army into society and security forces shall be concluded before the last Constitutional deadline of May 28, After the Maoist insurgency, it was in the Madhesi movement in which Nepal witnessed most killings. The state government has power to make federal laws,maintain law and order in the state. Nepal as a unitary state was also unsuccessful in generating employment opportunities for the large mass of unemployed people. Women have to fight for a correct line, which will address both the class and gender issues in correct proportion.

Ethnic radicalisation and extremism in multiethnic societies without tolerance and co-existence may contribute to ethnic conflict and may turn into civil unrest. The Carter Center's observation objectives are to support the electoral process, to promote confidence in the ECN and the voter registration process to the degree warranted, and to contribute to the overall strengthening of the democratic process. Politicians of all parties are eyeing their share in the coming earthquake reconstruction bonanza. Multiparty democracy was introduced in Nepal in after a popular uprising led by the Congress party and the United Left Front, a coalition of communist parties.

The peace process that began with the Comprehensive Peace Process of between the Maoist insurgents and political parties went through several challenges —combatant management, constituent assembly, state restructuring etc. Nepal as a unitary state was also unsuccessful in generating employment opportunities for the large mass of unemployed people. In the case of a unilateral decision by a federal unit to secede, the central government often enforces federal constitutions on unwilling federal units. They conceptually deal with how to allocate resources and power among and between federal units, how to overcome possible tensions among and between federal units and between the centre and the federal units, how to protect minority rights, how to establish mutual support among the federal units, and so forth.
