The National Assembly endorsed the National Assembly amendment bill 2014 yesterday. The Bill was passed after the members deliberated extensively for two days. One of the major amendments is an elected member will now have to reimburse the campaign fund for the general elections if they submit voluntary resignation before assuming office.However they don’t have to refund in case of physical disability and mental incapacity.

To discuss more on the issues pertaining to the bill, we had MP Ugyen Wangdi and MP Ritu Raj Chhetri in the studio yesterday.

    What if a member voluntarily resign after resuming office? Coz the amendment says the reimbursement only if member resign before assuming office….
