Nepal will hold its first local elections in two decades in May, the government has announced, a key moment in the country's fraught transition to democracy.

The Himalayan nation emerged from a brutal decade-long civil war in 2006, which brought the end of the 240-year-old monarchy and transformed it into a republic.

But deep political divides have prevented it from implementing a new constitution that paves the way for elections, but which the minority Madhesi community says leaves them politically marginalised.
