Govt enforces new order of precedence
The Ministry of Home Affairs has enforced a new order of precedence "in line with the new republican order", with the President at the top and second lieutenants of the Nepali Army at the bottom.
As per the recent decision approved by the Cabinet, the new order of precedence, the former king, who was Head of State in the past, has not been assigned a place in hierarchy. It has reserved the sixth position for former presidents.
