Two electoral legislations registered at the parliament

In the wake of growing demands for expediting formulation of necessary electoral legislations, the government has registered two draft legislations at the legislative parliament secretariat on Monday.

The Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs registered Election Bill 2063 and Election (Crime and Punishment) Bill 2063 at the secretariat.

On Sunday, Chief Election Commissioner Dr. Bhoj Raj Pokharel had urged the top leaders of eight parties to urgently formulate laws including the Constituent Assembly elections act and Political Parties Registration act.

Dr. Pokharel had warned that delay in their formulation could prevent the Election Commission from holding the CA polls on time.

Following the warning, Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala initiated consultations with UML general secretary and Speaker about the legislations.
