The passed proposals do not have constitutional meaning, say legal experts
Legal and constitutional experts have said that the proposals on public importance passed by the parliament, Sunday, on republic and proportional representation system do not have legal/constitutional meaning.
"They may have certain political meaning. But I fail to see their constitutional significance. For those proposals to have any legal weight, there has to be the constitutional amendment," Lalit Bahadur Basnet, a constitutional lawyer, told . And for any constitutional amendment to be approved, it needs two-third majority, which is not possible without the support of Nepali Congress.
Likewise, another constitutional lawyer Bhimarjun Acharya also told media that the proposals as political resolutions do not have legal force.
