SAC finalises two election-related bills
The State Affairs Committee (SAC) of the Legislative Parliament finalised two legislations related to the constituent assembly elections Monday.
The meeting of the SAC held in the morning finalised the Bill on Functions, Responsibilities and Authorities of the Election Commission and Bill on Election Crime and Punishment.
Both the bills will be tabled in the House today for approval.
Home Minister Krishna Prasad Sitaula and Chief Election Commissioner Bhoj Raj Pokhrel were present during the discussion.
