CA suspends rule to begin discussion on statute draft


Amid protest from leaders of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal and Madhesi parties, the CA Rule 93(3) has been suspended.

The suspension allows the CA to begin formal discussions on the preliminary draft of the constitution from tomorrow, without providing seven for the study.

Nepali Congress (NC) Chief Whip Chin Kaji Shrestha had presented a proposal for the suspension, which was seconded by UML and UCPN-Maoist Chief Whips Agni Kharel and Giriraj Mani Pokharel.
