This paved the way for hearing of Chief Justice, Chief Election Commissioner, Justices and ambassadors. Their hearing has been in limbo as the ruling and opposition parties had their differing stands on the strength of the committee for the last nine months. The House meeting endorsed the draft of the Legislature-Parliament Regulations, 2073 through voice vote. Regulations drafting committee chairperson Radheshyam Adhikari had tabled it. The regulations drafting committee was constituted on October 12, 2015. The main opposition Nepali Congress was batting for a 75-member hearing committee as per the defunct interim constitution but ruling CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre insisted on the 15-member body in line with the new constitution. The Nepali Congress withdrew a draft proposal on Sub-rule 2 of Rule 194 presented by its lawmaker Ananda Prasad Dhungana. The meeting approved the amendment in Rule 194(2) of the draft with a majority while rejecting amendment proposals from Hari Charan Shaha, Ram Kumar Rai, Prem Suwal and Anuradha Thapa.
