Kathmandu, May 17

The Parliamentary Hearing Committee in the federal parliament has approved nominations for ambassadors to China and South Africa.

In April, the government nominated 20 new persons to be appointed as Nepal’s ambassadors to various countries.
Of them, the House panel endorsed the names of Bishnu Pukar Shrestha and Dan Bahadur Tamang unanimously on Tuesday as no complaints were filed against them.

The committee has received several complaints against 18 other nominations for ambassadors. Hence, they will be heard later and decided accordingly, according to the committee.

The president will appoint Nepal’s ambassadors after the nominees named by the government will go through a parliamentary hearing, according to Nepal’s constitution.
