House meeting postponed in absence of minister

Kathmandu, July 11: Today’s meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR) has been postponed until tomorrow due to the absence of ministers.

HoR Speaker Devraj Ghimire announced the postponement of the HoR meeting until tomorrow after the Nepali Congress lawmaker Ramhari Khatiwada argued that the HoR meeting could not advance in absence of the prime minister and ministers.

The presence of a minister is mandatory for holding the HoR meeting as per Rule 6 (5) of the HoR Regulations, 2079.

The next meeting of the HoR is summoned for 11:00 am tomorrow.

Attention drawn towards the adjournment NA meeting

Nepali Congress, CPN (UML), Janata Samajbadi Party and Loktantrik Samajbadi Party have expressed concern over the adjournment of the meeting of the National Assembly today.

Despite disagreement of most of the members in the meeting of the NC state affairs committee, the NA meeting was adjourned all of a sudden.

A joint statement issued by the four parties states that the Chairperson of the National Assembly has postponed the meeting despite their disagreement taking over the absence of the Finance Minister which was mal-intended. Passing of Economic Bill 2081, National Debt Collection Bill 2081, Customs Tariff Bill 2081 were on the regular agenda.

The statement signed by UML chief whip Bhagwati Neupane, Congress chief whip Krishna Bahadur Rokaya, JSP party leader Mrigendra Kumar Singh and LSP party leader Shekhar Kumar Singh states the step has violated the constitutional and legal right of the NA to put forth its suggestions and amendments over the bill.
