HoR unanimously endorses proposal to consider the constitution amendment bill

Kathmandu / June 9: House of Representatives unanimously on Tuesday endorsed a proposal to consider the constitution amendment bill to pave way for replacing Nepal’s map in the national emblem with the country’s new political and administrative map which includes Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura.

Apart from the ruling Nepal Communist Party, the main opposition party Nepali Congress and Madhes-based parties also backed the proposal to consider the constitution amendment bill.

On May 30, Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shivamaya Tumbahangphe had tabled the bill for discussions at parliament in a bid to amend Nepal’s constitution to update the country’s map.

Three weeks ago, Law Minister Tumbahamphe had registered the constitution amendment bill at parliament after the government introduced a new political map that includes Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura.

The amendment bill seeks to amend the political map of Nepal included in Schedule 3 of the constitution. The new map will be used in all official documents including the coat of arms after the amendment bill is endorsed through parliament.
