Kathmandu, Dec 15: A meeting of the Legislature-Parliament scheduled for today was put off until coming Monday, following the failure of major political parties to find consensus on the constitution amendment proposal registered in Parliament.
A notice issued by General Secretary of the Parliament Secretariat Manohar Prasad Bhattarai informed the postponement of the House until 13:00 pm, December 19 due to a special reason.
Main opposition CPN-UML and other political parties have been opposing the amendment proposal registered in Parliament in a bid to address demands of various dissenting groups.
Earlier, the House sessions summoned on December 1, 2, 4, 7 and 9 were adjourned due to obstruction from the main opposition over the same matter.
It is noted that the main opposition has said that it would not allow the House resume its business until the bill is taken back while Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal is saying that the bill will not be withdrawn but matters for amendment may be changed. RSS
