Kathmandu, Nepal: Supreme Court (SC) has paved the way for the swearing-in of three National Assembly (NA) members of Federal Parliament (FP) recommended by incumbent KP Sharma Oli-led government by scrapping its own previous interim order.

With the SC order, Bimala Paudel Rai, Ram Narayan Bidari and Yubraj Khatiwada will be administered the oath of office and secrecy as the NA members. 

As the recommendation made by the incumbent government to appoint Rai, Bidari and Khatiwada as NA members was approved by the president overturning the recommendations of the previous Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba led government, a case was filed against of the decision demanding a stay order.  

Responding to the writ filed demanding a stay order, the SC had on February 25 directed the government and the Parliament to halt the scheduled swearing-in of the newly appointed three NA members.
