Parliament hasn’t convened to extend CA tenure (DEVELOPING STORY)

Kathmandu, 28 May: Parliament hasn’t convened until 10 at night to extend the CA tenure by midnight when its two-year term ends.
Women legislators from three major parties continue to chant slogans inside parliament premises calling either demanding the premier’s resignation or ruling party parliamentarians saying don’t kill the assembly.
Chairman Subash Nemwang wasn’t seated on his chair during the sloganeering.
CA will cease to function after midnight Friday without an agreement to extend its tenure.
At least four long procedures have to be completed in remaining two hours.
A government bill to extend the tenure has to be tabled along with a Maoist notification opposing it and discussion for and against must ensue.
A parliamentary procedure has to be amended that says three days must be set aside for any amendment to a bill.
Voting has to be conducted on amending the 8th amendment by division and a parliamentary session has to be convened to announce the president has verified the amendment.
Mission impossible? Anything is possible in Nepal.
