KATHMANDU, April 29: With the deadline for submitting constitution amendment proposals to the revised constitution amendment bill ending today, lawmakers from various political parties have submitted 45 amendment proposals at the Bill Section of the Legislature-Parliament.

Speaker Onsari Gharti had given a 72-hour-deadline for the lawmakers to submit their amendment proposals to the revised constitution amendment bill three days ago. 

The deadline is coming to an end at 10 pm on Saturday.

However, the ruling alliance is yet to submit their proposals to the constitution amendment bill.

The government had registered a revised constitution amendment bill after withdrawing the earlier bill on April 11 at the Parliament Secretariat.

According to the new bill, the government can form a federal commission to recommend the number of provinces and their boundaries.  

 It has also proposed to remove chairperson, vice chairperson of rural municipalities and mayor and deputy mayor of the municipalities from the Electoral College to elect members of the National Assembly.
