KATHMANDU — The Parliament has endorsed the Parliamentary Regulations on Sunday after the main opposition party Nepali Congress agreed on the 15-member hearing committee.
NC had agreed to have a 15-member Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee (PHSC ) after the ruling parties agreed to resend the name of Ram Prasad Sitaula, who was nominated Judicial Council member during the term of the previous Nepali Congress-led government, to the PHSC and endorse his name.
Following the endorsement there will be six members from NC, four from CPN-UML, two from CPN Maoist Center and one each from Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum Loktantrik in the hearing committee. One member has been allotted to the fringe parties.
The endorsement has also cleared the path for parliamentary hearing for the appointment of Chief Justice, 11 Supreme Court Justices and 22 ambassadors.
Earlier on Saturday, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba had agreed to pass the Regulations to end the months-long deadlock surfaced in appointment at various constitutional bodies and Nepali diplomatic missions.
