KATHMANDU, APR 11 – Chairman of Constituent Assembly (CA) Subash Chandra Nembang has expressed his confidence that the upcoming CA meeting would pave the way for drafting the new constitution.

Addressing a programme organised by the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry ( FNCCI) on the occasion of its 49th AGM and Industry Commerce Day 2071 here Saturday, the CA Chair said the constitution would be promulgated at any cost either through a consensus or a majority process.

He urged political parties to sort out contentious issues of the forthcoming constitution on the basis of consensus by April 13. Otherwise, the CA would resume its proceedings as per the regulations and procedures set by political parties themselves. “This time, it is mandatory for the CA to draft the constitution, if it is not possible, the drafting of constitution through the CA is never possible.”

On a different note, Speaker Nembang said he had already requested the government to announce the budget for new fiscal year on time and summon the winter session of the Legislature-Parliament at the earliest, urging business people to mount pressure on the government towards that end. RSS
