The Eighth Plan (1997-2002) will be completed by the end of June 2002 and the Ninth Plan will begin from the 1st of July 2002. The Ninth Plan (2002-2007) begins amidst unprecedented historical changes in the country. The decentralization process, initiated by His Majesty the King in 1981, has been fostered over two decades through gradual increases in empowerment and entrustment of responsibility commensurate with the ability of the people. The steady process of decentralization culminated in 1998 with the devolution of executive powers from the Throne to an elected Council of Ministers. In November 2001, in yet another historic move, His Majesty Commanded the drafting of a written Constitution for the country. As the pillar of the country’s governance, the Constitution will embody the expectations and aspirations of the people and safeguard the sovereignty and security of the nation for all time to come.
