Ambassadorial nominees to face parliamentary hearing on Nov 12

A meeting of the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee

Kathmandu, November 2

The Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee on Monday decided to conduct the hearing on the nominations of three people for their appointment as Nepal’s ambassadors to various countries.

Earlier, the government had nominated former finance minister Yuba Raj Khatiwada for the ambassador to the United States, former chief secretary Lok Darshan Regmi to the United Kingdom, and Nirmal Kumar Bishwakarma to South Africa.

Meanwhile, people who had filed complaints against Khatiwada and Regmi at the committee did not contact the panel for a further discussion. There were three complaints against Khatiwada and one against Regmi.

Before conducting a meeting with the nominees, the committee generally meets the complainants. However, the complainants did not come into contact with the committee this time.

The panel had issued a public notice in Gorkhapatra on October 20, asking them to contact the committee by today, but no one responded to it.

Now, the hearing process will continue without their participation.
