Statute within a week, assures CA Chairman

Chairman of the Constituent Assembly (CA) Subas Chandra Nembang has said the country would get the new constitution within a week.

Talking to journalists after the CA meeting on Thursday evening, Chairman Nembang informed that after the completion of clause-wise discussion on the Revised Bill of the Constitution, top political leaders would address the CA meeting followed by the proposal seeking approval of the Revised Bill of the Constitution.

A total of 54 proposals on amendment to the Revised Bill were tabled in the CA meeting. The proposals will not be withdrawn, but voice voting would decide whether to pass these.

Responding to a question relating to the demand of postponement of the CA process to bring the disgruntling parties on board, CA Chairman Nembang said, “I’m not aware of it. I’m devoted to my work. Within coming Sunday, the date to promulgate the constitution will be fixed.”

For the voice voting, it would take two days. Similarly, the CA Secretariat would take one more day to make technical arrangements. Then, the voting on every article of the Constitution Bill will begin.

If the CA does not witness any obstruction, endorsement of the articles bill will be over in two days.
