Nepal is awash in national pride today as the country celebrates its 17th Republic Day. Marked on the 15th of the Nepali calendar (May 28th this year), the day commemorates the official abolishment of the monarchy and the establishment of a federal democratic republic in 2008.

Celebrations are taking place across the nation with various programs and events. This significant day serves as a tribute to the historic people’s movement of 2006 (2062-063 BS) that paved the way for a democratic republic, where the power rests with the people.

A Turning Point in History

The journey towards a republic began in 2006 with massive public protests demanding an end to the autocratic monarchy. King Gyanendra Shah, bowing to public pressure, reinstated the dissolved parliament on April 24th, 2006, setting the stage for the eventual abolition of the monarchy two years later.

Reflecting on Progress

As Nepal celebrates its 17th Republic Day, the nation reflects on the significant strides made towards democracy. The day serves as a reminder of the power of the people and their unwavering commitment to establishing a just and representative government.

The government has declared a public holiday today to mark the occasion. A special ceremony is being held at Sainik Manch Tundikhel, the heart of Kathmandu, to commemorate this historic day. The ceremony is expected to be attended by high-ranking officials, dignitaries, and members of the public.
