KATHMANDU, JULY 13
Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba, who has been appointed the new Prime Minister of Nepal, will not take the oath of office until the Office of President revises its notice of appointment issued earlier today.
In the notice, the president's office has failed to disclose the article under which Deuba is being made the prime minister.
The notice states that Deuba is being appointed in accordance with the Supreme Court's verdict.
The SC, in its order issued Monday, had clarified that Deuba must be appointed the Prime Minister in line with Article 76 (5) of the Constitution.
As such, Deuba, after receiving some legal counsel, has sent across a message to President Bidya Devi Bhandari that he will not take the oath until the error is rectified.
The swearing-in ceremony was initially set to be held at 6:00 pm.
