Comment on statute draft and take ownership, CA Chairman tells citizens

KATHMANDU: Chairman of the Constituent Assembly (CA) Subas Chandra Nembang appealed to citizens of the nation to provide feedback on the draft constitution.

After the CA endorsed the Committee on Citizen Relations and Public Opinion Collection's 15-day plan to collect feedback from people before it gets promulgated, the CA Chair asked people to help the constitution writing body promulgate the statute.

"Since this is a preliminary draft," Nembang said at a press conference in the Capital this afternoon, "I want to assure respected brothers and sisters that the Assembly will amend the draft following your suggestions."

The leader said the feedback collection process will help people take ownership over the law.

Meanwhile, Nembang added the feedback collection teams will also take key features of the constitution draft along with the main document.

He claimed that the CA has followed the Interim Constitution, the CA Rule, the rule of law and democratic values while proceeding with the constitution drafting process.

Earlier today, the CA meeting  had passed the Committee's plan, according to which teams of lawmakers will visit districts and constituencies across the nation to collect feedback from people, from tomorrow.
