Constituent Assembly (CA) has decided to promulgate the new constitution of the nation on September 20 in the midst of a special function at the CA building.

CA Chairman Subas Nembang confirmed the date and said “I have set the date for promulgating the new constitution on September 20 at 5 pm in the wake of counseling with the top leaders of major political parties.”

President Ram Baran Yadav will reveal the new constitution in the midst of a public funstion at 5pm on Sunday. VP, heads of constitutional bodies, and representatives of diplomatic missions will be among the VVIPs in attendance on the occasion.

Once declared, the new charter will institutionalise republicanism, federalism, secularism and inclusiveness—key achievements of political movements since 2006.
