On Wednesday, Nepal’s latest Prime Minister, Sher Deuba, appointed Narayan Khadka as the foreign affairs minister. The appointment will Narayan, a Nepali Congress party candidate, enter the central cabinet led by Sher Deuba.
Sher Deuba was previously criticized by many for not lending a complete operational state to the incumbent government. The Prime Minister was previously holding the external affairs ministry since he was sworn in. The secretary of the Prime Minister informed the Presidential Office about this appointment.
The President of Nepal, Bidya Devi Bhandari, is expected to officialize the appointment this afternoon by making Narayan undertake the oath of office and secrecy.
The incumbent coalition government had earlier reached a consensus that the foreign affairs minister would be appointed immediately.
