A meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR) today unanimously endorsed the proposal to send the Nepal Media Council Bill, 2076 BS to the respective parliamentary committee for clause-wise deliberations.

Minister for Communication and Information Technology, Gyanendra Bahadur Karki, presented the Bill along with the message from the National Assembly to the respective committee for deliberations.

Before the presentation of the proposal for the decision, lawmaker Prem Suwal said the meeting lacked a quorum to present the proposal for the decision. Following his claim, Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota instructed for counting the number of lawmakers present in the meeting and it was found that the session met the criteria for tabling the proposal.

As per the constitutional provision, no resolution shall be presented for decision in either House of Parliament unless one-fourth of the total number of members of the concerned House is present.

The lower house shall meet again at 1:00 pm on September 10.
