NA endorses report on Rules of Procedures

KATHMANDU: The National Assembly meeting today has endorsed with majority the National Assembly Rules Drafting Committee's Report, 2075 BS.

The report was tabled by the Committee Chair Parshuram Meghi Gurung.

Expressing their views on the report, MPs called for clarity in some matters including running the upper house effectively and about the term of the NA members.

They emphasised on the need to make separate provisions based on the region, class and open members with regards to their term in the NA.

The rules of procedures should help maintain dignity of the upper house and run the house as per the people's expectations, they said.

Making such recommendations were Dinanath Sharma, Badri Pandey, Ram Narayan Bidari, Bimala Rai Poudel, Ramesh Prasad Yadav, Balram Banskota, Ramprit Paswan and Bina Pokharel among others.

Those wishing to register amendment proposal to the NA rules of procedures drafting committee report could do so within 1:00 pm on May 9. The National Assembly will meet the same day at 3:00 pm.
