On July 23, the constituent ended the 15-day campaign to collect suggestions from the people. After the suggestion collection phase, the discussions are still going on. The Prime Minister of Nepal, Sushil Koirala, once announced that the new constitution will be promulgated by August 15, 2015. The people of Nepal have been deceived by the leaders many times before, so there is still doubt that the announcement made by the PM will come true.

DWIT NEWS conducted a small survey to find out whether or not the DWIT family believes that we will get a new constitution by mid-August as announced by the PM. The pie chart below shows the result.
