Nepal to sweep king power to parliament
font size    

The draft regulations of House of Representatives (HoR), or parliament, that seeks to further curtail the king's privileges and ensure sweeping power to the parliament was tabled at the HoR Wednesday, state run Radio Nepal reported here Thursday.

"Nepal Peasants and Workers Political Party (NWPP) chairman Narayan Man Bijukchhe, who headed a 13-member drafting committee, tabled the HoR regulations," the radio reported.

The draft proposes to do away with the concept of "king in parliament" adopted by the constitution of the 1990.

If ratified, which is certain, the king will no more be a part of the parliament and the provision to send legislatures passed by the HoR to the Royal Palace for royal seal will become void.

"As per the proposal, bills passed by the HoR will become law after certification by the speaker," Bujukchhe said while presenting the proposal.

Similarly, instead of the king, the prime minister will be presenting the policies and programs to the parliament while the parliament sessions will be called by the speaker at the recommendation of the prime minister and the speaker can also end the session.
