Nepal completed the first five-year tenure of all elected governments at three levels in 2022. Those five years of electoral politics have demonstrated several ups and downs in terms of their conceptualisation and implementation of collaborative federalism in Nepal. While each level of government spent much of its time in framing basic public policies suitable in the context of new government structure, there did not appear much collaborative efforts across both vertical and horizontal jurisdictions. This piece of writing aims to dissect some preliminary impressions of the first five-year tenure (2017-2022) of elected governments, with the hope of exploring aspects of collaborative federalism in Nepal.
