Govt recommends 3 including former NRB governor Khatiwada for National Assembly

The KP Oli government on Tuesday has recommended three names for the National Assembly to the President overturning the recommendation made by the previous government. .

A Cabinet meeting Tuesday morning has recommended former Nepal Rastra Bank governor Yuba Raj Khatiwada, Ram Narayan Bidari and Bimala Paudel Rai for the National Assembly. The previous Cabinet meeting on Sunday had decided to recommend new names to the President.

The caretaker Sher Bahadur Deuba government in its twilight hours had recommended Gopal Basnet, Krishna Prasad Paudel and Chandani Joshi to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari. But the President’s Office did not recommend those names stating that the government made the recommendations unilaterally without consulting with parties.
