A new beginning
second Constituent Assembly (CA) of Nepal held its first meeting at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in New Baneshwor. The acting Chairman of the CA, Surya Bahadur Thapa – who is also the seniormost member of the assembly - chaired the meeting. The CA members elected through direct and proportional electoral systems participated in the meeting and were sworn in by Thapa.
