The reports will now be sent to the Committee to Study and Determine Constitutional Records for further discussions.
An agreement between the top three parties on Wednesday at the prime minister’s official residence and support of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal (RPP-N) paved way for the proposal to be placed before the CA.
The first CA had 11 thematic committees. The agreement to take ownership of the achievements in line with the commitment to complete the constitution writing process within a year.
Another meeting of the CA scheduled at 3pm is expected to speed up the formation of five CA committees.

However, which parties will take the leaderships of the respective committees is yet to be decided.
