‘Governors to stay’

KATHMANDU: The Minister of Communications and Information Technology Gokul Prasad Baskota said the Cabinet’s decision to rescind appointments made by  the previous government would not affect the appointment of governors of provinces, as those appointments were made as per the constitutional provisions.

He said the government took the decision to cancel last government’s decisions mainly because those appointments were made in violation of the election code of conduct.

Sources in the government said they were collecting data on how many appointments were made by the previous government after the election code of conduct was enforced.
