Prime Minister Sushil Koirala has reiterated that the new constitution will be drafted by January 22, 2015.

Urging all to remain positive, PM Koirala said that nobody can prevent the constitution from being promulgated on the slated timeframe. Koirala further informed that the constitution would be drafted by democratic procedure if consensus eluded on the debated issues of the new constitution .
“Top leaders of the major parties have been deliberating on the disputed issues,” said Koirala, adding, “Few issues remain to be sorted out. It is necessary to settle the issues via talks.”
Koirala expressed concerns over the statements of the opposition parties to hit the streets if agreement was not reached on the debated issues. “The nation will move further backwards if we opt for agitation. We should all unite to promulgate a democratic constitution .”
