The Lumbini Province Assembly has passed 67 bills in four years of its establishment. A total of 74 bills were registered in the Assembly, according to Province Assembly secretariat.

Among the bills registered in the Assembly, two are under consideration. One bill was sent back from the Assembly and three others from the thematic committees.

The Province Assembly's regular business was affected due to continuous obstruction of parliament after the formation of the coalition government. It resulted in a lack of political consensus and registration of a new bill in the Assembly. 

After the formation of the coalition government, only two bills including one on implementation of financial proposal of the provincial government was passed by the Lumbini Province Assembly.

So, most of the bills were registered and certified during the tenure of Chief Minister Shankar Pokhrel. "Now, the major opposition party has continuously obstructed the Assembly meeting," said the secretary at Lumbini Province Assembly, Durlav Kumar Punmagar.

There are 37 lawmakers of CPN UML, 19 each of Nepali Congress, and CPN (Maoist Centre), four of Janata Samajbadi Party, one each of CPN (Unified Socialist), and Rastriya Janamorcha, and one independent lawmaker.

Information Officer at Lumbini Province Assembly secretariat, Dinesh Adhikari, said only two bills were passed. The Province Assembly is marking its establishment day on February 4 by organizing various programs.
