Nepalís government is a constitutional monarchy. In response to major pro-democracy protests, Nepal adopted a new constitution in 1990 that established a multiparty democracy but preserved the kingís status as chief of state. The 1990 constitution ended nearly 30 years of absolute monarchy in which the king dominated Nepalís politics and political parties were banned. Nepal has universal suffrage beginning at the age of 18.
