Kathmandu, Jan. 26: The first Legislature-parliament session after the Constituent Assembly election II began today. The meeting began as per the call of the President Dr Ram Baran Yadav in accordance with Article 51 of the Interim Constitution of Nepal 2007.

Opening the meeting, CA and LP Chairman Surya Bahadur Thapa recited the letter sent by the President to the parliament.

Addressing the meeting, Chairman of the Council of Ministers, Khil Raj Regmi, said it was the national responsibility to promulgate the new constitution through the CA by institutionalizing the achievements of the political movements so far. Promulgation of new constitution would meet the people’s aspiration of the constitution, he added.

Reminding that the present government was formed at a time of political and constitutional vacuity for holding the CA election, Chairman Regmi said he was very happy to see the formation of the CA following its successful election. “Now, the time has come for political understanding and judiciousness for drafting the new constitution on time”, Regmi said.

“The first CA meeting on January 22 after the second CA has generated a new hope for timely constitution and has also opened up political developments like the formation of new government,” said Chairman Regmi.

Wishing for success of the upcoming tenure of the lawmakers, Chairman Regmi also expressed gratitude to the political parties and newly-elected lawmakers for their support to conclude the Constituent Assembly (CA) elections successfully.

Currently, top leaders of the 30 political parties represented in the Legislature-Parliament are addressing the House.

As per today’s agenda, the proposal on session and work procedures based on the CA (Legislature-Parliament Work Procedures) Regulations-2065 BS would be tabled at the house later today.

Likewise, Chairman Regmi is scheduled to table the order made to remove the difficulties issued by the President as per Article 158 of the Constitution. RSS
