Minister for Population and Environment, Jaydev Joshi, said the constitution amendment bill would be passed by the parliament.
During a press meet organized by Nepal Press Union Dang Chapter here Sunday, Minister Joshi claimed that not only the lawmakers from the political parties in the government but also those outside the government would vote for the amendment of the constitution.
The date of local body election would be announced immediately after the passage of the constitution amendment bill.
On a different note, Minister Joshi said government was committed to reducing load shedding hours by adopting alternative energy and micro hydropower.
Executive Director at the Alternative Energy Promotion Centre, Ram Prasad Dhital, said electrification would be augmented in the villages detached from the central transmission line through renewable energy.
