Nepal’s new PM Sher Bahadur Deuba has decided to withdraw a previous decision made by his predecessor KP Sharma Oli to appoint 11 members as Nepali Ambassadors for various countries.
A cabinet meeting of the new government held on Friday made the decision to this effect.
Earlier, before his dethroning, Oli was planning to appoint 11 ambassadors after 45 days of the recommendation, even in the absence of the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee after the dissolution of the House of Representatives. On the same lines, KP Oli had appointed various officials in various constitutional bodies.
According to the Parliamentary Laws, any appointment subject to the hearing can be endorsed if the Hearing Committee fails to give a concrete decision in 45 days.
However, the then Oli-led government misinterpreted those appointments can be made after the period even when the Hearing Committee did not exist.
With the reinstatement of the HoR, the Deuba-led government had rejected Oli’s decision to appoint the ambassadors even though the Hearing Committee has also been revived.
Unfortunately, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had already sent letters to the concerned nations requesting agreements in the listed names to make appointments as soon as the 45 days are completed.
