The CA committee on determining the form of legislative bodies has tabled its concept paper and final report at the CA Monday.
Chairman of the committee Ramesh Rijal presented the report before a meeting of the CA held Monday afternoon.
Rijal said, the report recommends for a bicameral parliamentary system with a 151-member House of Representatives and a 51-member National parliament Assembly.
The committee had approved the final report through voting on Wednesday last week after a consensus could not be reached.
Some CA members mostly representing the Unified CPN (Maoist) have written note of dissents on the report.
The Maoists, who had agreed on a bicameral parliament earlier, have now taken a stance on a unicameral parliament with an executive president. They have proposed for one parliament with 245 members.
The committee has recommended for a unicameral system in the states with a 35-member legislative assembly elected through a mixed electoral system in each.
According to the report, the House of Representatives will have 76 members elected by direct elections and 75 members under proportional system.
The National Assembly will have 38 members representing the states and 13 members nominated by the House of Representatives.
The tenure of both the houses will be five years.
This is the fifth report presented at the CA. Six out of eleven thematic committees are yet to finalise their report.
The CA had gone on recess on July 21 due to lack of ‘business.’ nepalnews.com
