Kathmandu, May 31
The government is tabling the constitution amendment bill in the House of Representatives on Sunday.
The government has recently registered the bill in order to revise the national emblem as per a new political map of the country.
The tabling was listed on the agenda of the House last week but was withdrawn at the last hour as all the parties in the House did not unanimously extend their support to the bill. The Federal Parliament Secretariat has put it on the agenda for the meeting today after the main opposition, Nepali Congress, decided to vote for the amendment.
The bill needs a two-thirds majority backing to get endorsed from both houses of parliament. The ruling Nepal Communist Party alone falls short of this requirement in the Lower House.
Meanwhile, the People’s Socialist Party Nepal is undecided whether to support the bill.
