KATHMANDU: President Dr Ram Baran Yadav has drawn attention of Constituent Assembly (CA) Chairperson Subas Nembang to do maximum efforts for the timely statute.
“People are expecting the new constitution by May 27,” said President Yadav inaugurating the Election Education and Information Center at Election Commission on Thursday.
President Dr Yadav urged the CA Chairperson to leave no stone unturned to issue the new constitution by the May 27 deadline, as per the people's hopes and expectations.
Only timely statute will institutionalize the fruits of democratic revolutions, said President Yadav at a time when political parties are at variance over the extension of CA’s tenure.
UCPN-Maoist and the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) have been seeking the extension of CA but NC and the CPN-UML are pressing for the timely constitution.
