Agendas set for parliament session
Jan 25, 2014-
The cross-party meeting of the Constituent Assembly (CA) lawmakers on Friday decided to table the ordinance concerning removal of constitutional difficulties that led to the formation of the Interim Election Government under Khil Raj Regmi, among other agendas, at the first meeting of the Legislature Parliament on Sunday.
The 25-point ordinance had paved way for formation of technocratic government under incumbent chief justice by changing the constitutional provision that only party-led government could be formed.
As per the constitution, the ordinance concerning removal of constitutional difficulties has to be endorsed within one month of Legislature Parliament meeting. Spokesperson of the Legislature Parliament Secretariat Mukunda Sharma said the other agendas for Sunday include reading out letter of the president and continuation of the Legislature Parliament Rules of Procedure (2065) until a new one is in place.
Thereafter, Sharma said, the leaders will address the meeting.
“Leaders representing 30 parties will put forth their party position on different issues of constitution writing,” said CPN-UML leader Bharat Mohan Adhikari.
The Sunday’s meeting, however, will not take up the issue of ordinances that are to be endorsed by the House.
Nepali Congress leader Anand Dhungana informed the Monday’s meeting will look into the ordinances that are to be tabled by the House.
The Bill Section of the Secretariat has been informed by the government that it plans to table 23 ordinances, including the one concerning CA elections, Mutual Legal Assistance, organised crime, railway and ordinance
for making civil services inclusive.
A new bill has to be introduced within two months to replace these ordinances. If any lawmaker has reservation on the ordinances then one has to register their misgivings at the Secretariat within two days from the day the ordinance has been tabled.
