First draft endorsed

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

After five days of deliberation, Constituent Assembly (CA) on Tuesday passed the preliminary draft of the new constitution.

The draft will now be published in the Nepal gazette for public consultations. After incorporating suggestions collected from the public, the draft will be revised and presented at the CA yet again. The CA aims to pass the new constitution in one month’s time. To fast-track the drafting process, the CA is suspending several clauses of the CA Rules of Procedure.

Deliberation on the draft was halted on the first day by the Hindu Royalist RPP-N, which had objected to a provision of religious freedom. But the RPP-N allowed the CA to proceed after the top three major parties agreed to not define it as ‘rights to religious conversion’.

Prime Minister Sushil Koirala said endorsement of the preliminary draft by the CA was a historic moment. “No one now needs to have speculations over the promulgation of the new constitution,” he said.

UML Chair KP Oli said, “The new constitution institutionalises federal democratic republic and ends inequality and discrimination.”

UCPN (Maoist) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal said, “We all have sacrificed some of our stances to write people’s constitution.”

  1. Ravi Raj Kaur on Says:

    Thinking back it was a mistake to hurry the Constitution. Fear of India and Madhesi? No it was not.
    Need to show the Public a result?
    Save your energies, the greater public is homeless without electricity and does not believe so much….

    When Madhesi trouble in Terai was foreseen, is the original identity worth killing the nation for. Absolutely but forgot 1. peace process needs JUSTICE. after justice madhouse is peanuts, but justice is nowhere absolutely no where.
    It is not a solution to make political parties for cats and women. Of course China controls Nepal and if anyone thinks caste or language matter they do. But I hope Modi lost popularity.
