Four lawmakers suspended for breaching parliamentary discipline.

Kathmandu, June 20 -- Speaker of the legislature parliament Subas Chandra Nemwang on Sunday suspended four lawmakers for violating parliamentary discipline and repeatedly obstructing the House proceedings.

The Speaker took the decision after four agitating lawmakers Bishwendra Paswan, Buddharatna Manandhar, Rukmini Chaudhary and Sadrul Miyahak obstructed local development minister Urmila Aryal from going towards the rostrum. She was supposed to respond to the concerns raised by lawmakers in the parliament on misuse of parliamentary development fund.

They were hauled out by the marshals at the parliament after Speaker ordered to eject them from assembly hall with due respect as they continued obstructing House proceedings despite repeated requests for not doing so. The suspended lawmakers cannot take part in the meetings of Constituent Assembly, parliament and house committees for seven days.

This is the first instance of suspending lawmakers after the success of democratic movement in April, 2006 in the Himalayan republic.

The four lawmakers had obstructed House several times in the past demanding a guarantee of inclusive nature in the upcoming constitution. The suspended lawmakers had also resorted to vandalism in the House committee meeting in the past.
