Home Minister tables federal democratic republic proposal

KATHMANDU, May 28 - Home Minister Krishna Prasad Sitaula, on behalf of Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala, has tabled the proposal to implement the federal democratic republic in the country at the Constituent Assembly (CA) meeting at the Birendra International Convention Centre (BICC) on Wednesday night.

The CA members will vote on the proposal at the CA meeting.
After the proposal is passed the country will be declared a federal democratic republic, ending the 240-year-old institution of monarchy, and the royal family will become common law abiding citizens with their special privileges slashed.

The government will immediately take initiatives to convert the Narayanhiti palace into a national museum
