Oli reappoints 4 ministers who lost House membership; HM Thapa also removed from Maoist party

L-R: Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, Lekh Raj Bhatta, Prabhu Sah, and Gauri Shankar Chaudhary

Kathmandu, April 9

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has reappointed Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, Lekh Raj Bhatta, Prabhu Sah, and Gauri Shankar Chaudhary as ministers of his cabinet.

The four were working as ministers, but they had lost the positions as a result of the party from which they were elected into the House of Representatives, CPN-Maoist Centre, removing them from the House.

However, the constitution still allows a non-parliamentarian to serve as a minister for maximum six months, hence they are being reappointed.

Oli’s press advisor Surya Thapa says the ministers will take the oath of office and secrecy at the President’s Office at 5 pm later today.

Thapa also removed

Meanwhile, the Maoist Centre also removed Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa also from the party.

Once the National Assembly meeting takes place next, he will also lose the lawmaker’s position.
