Karki appointed Press Council chair
The government has appointed senior advocate Borna Bahadur Karki as the chairman of Nepal Press Council.
A cabinet meeting on Thursday decided to appoint him to the post, scrapping the appointment of former Supreme Court justice Awadhesh Kumar Yadav.
A writ petition challenging Yadav's appointment is pending at the Supreme Court. It argued that the appointment was against legal provisions that bar former chief justices and justices of the apex court from holding any government post other than the chairman or the member of the National Human Rights Commission. nepalnews.com
