PA members’ protocol motion passed

Dhangadi, May 2

Province 7 assembly today passed a resolution motion related to the protocol of provincial assembly members.

The motion tabled by CPN-MC assembly member Akkal Bahadur Rawal and seconded by legislator Dilliraj Panta of Nepali Congress was endorsed unanimously.

Speaker Arjun Bahadur Thapa formally announced ratification of the motion after it was backed by one and all present in the meeting.

Stating that the order of precedence published by the federal government in Nepal Gazette in February had disparaged PA members by keeping them below the level of college lecturer in the state protocol, Rawal had tabled the motion seeking amendment in the order of precedence.

Four PA members representing different parties had put forth their views on the motion.
