Republica is upcoming English language newspaper from Kathmandu, Nepal.

Newly formed committees at the Constituent Assembly today started the process of drafting a new constitution for the Republic of Nepal, eight months after the people elected the supreme constitution-making body.

Fourteen committees including a Constitutional Committee, 10 thematic committees and three procedural committees held separate meetings to decide how they should enter the process of giving the new republican Nepal a democratic constitution within the next 17 months.

The 10 thematic committees will work on contents pertaining to their respective fields and the three procedural committees will collect people’s opinions and determine the process, according to Tek Prasad Dhungana, a joint secretary at the CA secretariat.

“So we have to set out within the next 14 days the schedule for the committees for meeting the constitution-making deadline and the areas they have to deal with,” said Dhungana, who is also secretary at the most important Constitutional Committee.

He said the Constitutional Committee will have prime responsibility for drafting the preamble and for dealing with sovereignty issues, the process of constitution making and most of the provisions not specified as being under the jurisdiction of other the committees.

Talking to reporters after attending the Constitutional Committee meeting at the CA secretariat in Singha Durbar, Prime Minister and member of the committee Puspa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ said that with the committees starting their work a foundation for drafting a federal democratic republican constitution is being laid. “It shows how serious the Constituent Assembly is toward its constitution-making responsibility.”

As per the CA regulations, Constitutional Committee members took their oath of office before starting the formal meetings.

  1. Teacher turned terrorist turned bhittey rastrapati turned Asaksham Prime Minister Pushpey is now talking about imposing emergency in the country. It will require suspension of the CA and thus these useless committees. What constitution writing when the gun weilding terrorists with a rampaging semi-militant force YCK out in the loose are ruling the country and haven’t returned the land of many of the citizens and are continuing to extort and threaten the majority of the people. The thugs have fooled the “mahaan” janatas for far too long and are in the process of creating enough chaos and failures so that this Nepal turns itself into a failed state and walks itself into communist set up. Welcome to People’s Republic of Nepal!!

  2. 10 hrs load shedding……….. is someone joking with us or its real……………………………………………………………….
    ……………………………………………………………….. govt. needs to buil a dam to reserve (enough for a few months to operate power house during dry period) excess water from rainy season………………………………………………………
    the investment will be returned by selling excess power and the second is, potential companies buinding power plant on that river will offer extra royalty because they would be able to utilize excess water to generate extra power during dry season…………………..
    ……………………………………….. and again due to global warming, in future, there will be less water source during non rainy season, so we will have to build reservoir for those time anyway.
