Seventh constitution day of Nepal
The constitution of any country makes sure that the government bodies make decisions that are for the public welfare. The second constituent assembly of Nepal drafted the constitution seven years ago from today.
The constituent assembly of Nepal officially drafted the new constitution of Nepal on 20 September 2015. This was officially the second attempt at drafting the constitution. The country was in immense need of a well-defined constitution after the big earthquake that came in April 2015. The constituent assembly members were the ones behind the drafting of the constitution. Out of 598 members of the constituent assembly 538 supported this decision back in 2015. Nepal’s constitution now constitutes 308 articles and 9 schedules after the second attempt of drafting it.
