Kathmandu, May 14 : Nepal's women leaders and women's rights activists on Wednesday submitted a memorandum to the government demanding the inclusion of women in the list of 26 Constituent Assembly (CA) members to be nominated by the cabinet.

Inter-party women network Chairman Uma Adhikari informed that she met with senior leaders of all the major parties today to seek their attention on the issue.

According to Kantipur, women leaders and women's rights activists organised a rally from Bhatbhateni to the Prime Minister's residence in Kathmandu to submit the memorandum.

The network sought the cabinet's attention on the issue, as there is no provision in the interim constitution for inclusion of women nominees among the 26 CA members to be elected by the cabinet.
