Nepal’s Constituent Assembly has approved a new constitution on after years of hindrances because of disagreements among major political parties.

According to The New York Times, several smaller party members in the assembly opposed the vote while it was approved by 507 of 601 lawmakers.

The process leading up to Wednesday’s vote met with a wall of protest from Nepal’s southern plains where people objected to the drawing of seven provinces, one of the most contentious issues surrounding the charter.

Nepal has had an interim Constitution since 2007. Its new Constitution is scheduled to be formally put into effect by President Ram Baran Yadav on Sunday.
