KATHMANDU, Aug 29: The House of Representatives (HoR) has begun theoretical discussions on the Bill to Amend Some Nepal Acts, 2080. Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Dhanraj Gurung had presented a proposal in the HoR session today, seeking consideration of the Bill.

This Bill which aims to amend 79 different legislations was registered in the HoR, the lower house of the Federal Parliament, on May 9. The Law Minister had registered the bill citing that some Nepal Acts needed to be amended for reforming the existing Nepal Acts.

Taking part in the deliberations on the Bill, lawmaker Ramesh Lekhak said the topics included in the Bill for amending the Country Criminal Procedural Law Code should not be passed in its present form. He stressed that the bill has to be taken ahead only after holding additional discussions and amendments to it.

Dr Amaresh Kumar Singh said too many laws should not be amended through the Bill to Amend Some Nepal Acts.

Lawmaker Mahesh Bartaula also suggested introducing the amendments through separate bills, arguing that amending too many topics through a single bill will end up not a single one of the topics receiving the attention it deserves.

He also said that the lawmakers' participation should also be taken into consideration while endorsing the Bill.
