Sub-committee seeks two more days to settle disputes on statute
The dispute resolution sub-committee under the Constitutional Committee has sought two more days to settle the differences on the subjects of the new constitution.
A meeting of the sub-committee, which is headed by Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Monday asked the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) of the House to give it a couple of days more, saying that the parties had already reached understanding on a number of key subjects and that the remaining ones would be settled within a couple of days.
The BAC is to decide on the sub-committee's demand today itself.
Earlier, the BAC had said that the five days it gave to the sub-committee to find a consensus would be the final deadline.
Even as the leaders claimed that they had settled key differences on form of governance, formation of constitutional court, electoral system and citizenship, but they have not been able to find consensus on the most contentious subject - restructuring of the state. nepalnews.com
