CA endorses Nepal’s Constitution 2072 with two-thirds majority
The Constituent Assembly on Wednesday evening endorsed the Revised Bill on Nepal’s Constitution with an overwhelming two-thirds majority.
Now, the Bill will become Nepal’s new charter once the lawmakers sign and the CA Chairperson authenticate it.
When put to split voting after the endorsement of individual articles and schedules, the entire Revised Bill garnered support from 507, out of 598 lawmakers. As many as 25 CA members, however, cast their vote against the Bill. Altogether 532 members cast their votes, while 65 others did not take part in the voting process. Most of the Madhes-based parties boycotted the voting process.
After announcing that the CA endorsed the draft constitution, CA Chairman Subas Chandra Nembang has asked the lawmakers to sign on the dossier at the CA building from 9 am 3 pm on Friday.
In the CA meeting, scheduled for 5 pm on Sunday, September 20, President Dr Ram Baran Yadav will announce the spread of new constitution through the sovereign body elected by the people.
