The newly released map of the KP Sharma Oli Government could not have been debated in Nepal and voted on its amendment bill in its parliament. Areas of Lipulekh, Lympiyadhura and Kalapani are displayed on the new map of Nepal. It needs the acceptance of a constitutional amendment by the national parliament in order to become legal.
Parliament was scheduled to take on Wednesday the draft constitutional amendment. But mainly due to the lack of numbers on the floor of the house it was delayed. The government is less than the two-thirds majority needed to amend the Constitution.
Even so, Nepal's Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali said in an unique discussion that he trusted the bill would be approved shortly.
Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali said: "An amendment bill is unanimously proposed by the government for the newly published map, and will soon be debated and ratified unanimously.
When asked about when it would take place, he told Nepal that this is already on the agenda.
"The budget is tomorrow. Hence, the reform bill is expected to be presented on Wednesday, and, if not, very early. However, with the cooperation of all parties in Nepal, I am sure that it will be accepted and ratified," Gyawali said.
