Legal experts stress on amendment to constitution draft
Lalitpur, July 26: Current and former members of the Constituent Assembly, legal and constitutional experts have suggested to promulgate the new constitution only after finalizing the name and demarcations of the federal units.
Speaking at an interaction organized by Lalitpur Bar Association here today, they also voiced their support for a directly elected head of the federal executive. Stating that efforts were being made to include many things in the draft, they stressed on the need to reflect constitutionalism and the balance of power in it.
On the occasion, Nepal Bar Association Chair Hari Krishna Karki said the new constitution should put an end to instability and not promote conflict between the judiciary and the executive.
CA member representing Laltipur Madan Bahadur Amatya said it would be difficult to work in the interest of the people unless the mentality of the leaders was changed while ex-CA member Ekraj Bhandari said the constitution, as proposed in the draft, would give continuity to the conflict.
CA member Laxman Rajbanshi said a CA member elected through the inclusive system is seemed to be of the second class member while former CA member Rajkaji Maharjan said the draft constitution is an appropriate document for rebellion.
