Help needed about the succession to the Nepalese throne[edit]

In 2006 the Nepalese government proposed adopting equal primogeniture. This would have meant that the eldest child of the monarch, regardless of gender would inherit. For this to come into affect it would have to be approved by the parliament (House of Representatives). There's a lot of confusion about this. Did the parliament approve the new succession law last year or did they reject it? We can't find any articles saying whether the parliament/House of Representatives approved the bill or rejected it. Can someone from Nepal clarify this situation? Expert help needed! (From discussions on Talk:Prince Hridayendra of Nepal) FrinkMan 11:57, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

The Parliament couldn't have approved, if the Prime Minister called for the King & crown prince to abdicate in favour of the prince. If the Parliament had approved, then the PM would've called for the dual abdication in favour of the princess. GoodDay 22:02, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps, but there is also the possibility that the PM simply voiced his own opinion. But anyway, an article about whether the parliament/House of Representatives approved the bill or rejected it would be nice. Help is needed from someone that can speak/read Nepalese!
