Constitution being amended to enfranchise 18-year-olds

By Bhola B Rana
Kathmandu, 28 Oct: The cabinet Monday gave approval to a proposal to amend the constitution to enfranchise those who reached 18 years in the second week of April 2007 to vote in by-elections in early 2009.
By-elections are being held in sis constituencies vacated by President Dr Ram Baran Yadav, Prime Minister Prachanda and Ministers Upendra Yadav, Bijaya Gachedhar, Deb Gurung and former prime minister Sher Bahadur Deuba.
The president vacated a constituency in Dhanusha after his election as head of state and the prime minister, ministers and Deuba were elected from two constituencies.
Ironically, the CA has only been involved in amending the constitution without even beginning preliminary work to draft a new constitution nearly seven months after the assembly election.
Work on drafting a constitution is being sidelined with deep political differences that have surfaced between the Maoists and main opposition Nepali Congress.
Congress has begun a jihad accusing Maoists of attempting to derail democracy.
