Articles 8, 9 of constitution to be suspended
Prior to endorsing the Citizenship Bill (CB) from the current parliamentary session, the Parliamentary Proclamation Special Committee (PPISC) in the House of Representatives is all set to suspend certain Articles of the existing constitution that contravene the Parliamentary Proclamation (PP) - 2006.

In order to address the citizenship issue before constituent assembly polls, PPISC has been doing necessary homework to remove Articles 8 and 9 of the constitution by replacing them with the clause of distributing citizenship certificates as per PP-2006.
The PPISC headed by Speaker Subash Nembang held its meeting on Friday which was also attended by Home Minister Krishna Sitaula and Minister for Industry, Commerce and Supply Hridayesh Tripathi. "The meeting discussed constitutional hindrances," said Nembang.
