Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the government is preparing to register the proposal to amend the constitution before the Dashain festival.

He said constitution amendment proposal will be registered on the basis of a national consensus bringing main opposition party UML into confidence.

Speaking at a press conference in Chitwan, he informed that the Morcha was assured that the constitution implementation and the constitution amendment would go simultaneously.

He went on to say that the Cabinet decision to set up local units being based on ilaka (area) of the District Development Committee has eased the process to organise local poll on time.

The prime minister also said all three levels of elections would take place within the stipulated time.
