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.Follow @gorkhapost
Man divorces wife just 15 minutes after Islamic marriage in Dubai
A man in Dubai divorced his bride just 15 minutes after their Islamic marriage as he felt ‘insulted’ by her father’s bride price demands.
The man agreed to pay his new father-in-law Dh100,000 for their wedding but the older man became impatient to get the cash, DailyMail reported.
According to Gulf News, family members and friends accompanied the couple to a Sharia judge’s office to witness the marriage contract being signed. The groom then gave Dh 50,000 on the spot as agreed, with the rest to come after the party left the court building, according to Gulf News.
But, the bride’s father demanded the remaining cash as soon as the signing was over, even though the groom didn’t have it on him.
He said it would only take five minutes to walk to his car, which was parked outside, and get the rest of the bride price.
Instead of letting him retrieve it, the father insisted him to pay either right then or send a friend or relative to get the money while he stayed inside.
The groom felt insulted and demeaned by the series of demands and called off the marriage immediately, a lawyer handling the case said.
‘He told the bride’s father that he did not want his daughter as his wife and divorced her in less than 15 minutes from signing the marriage contract,’ he said.Follow @gorkhapost
