Nepal's Home Minister Thapa relieved from Upper House, to continue as Minister for 6 months

Nepal's Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa has lost his seat at National Assembly or Upper House after his party CPN-Moist Centre decided to remove him.

Despite the action taken by the party against Thapa, he can continue his ministership for six months.

Issuing a notice on Sunday, the Parliament Secretariat stated that Thapa has been relieved from the post on the recommendation of his party, CPN-Maoist Centre.

Despite losing his seat in the Upper House, Thapa can continue his ministership for another 6 months as per the constitutional provisions.

Article 78 of the Constitution of Nepal-2072 allows a person who is not a member of the Federal Parliament to become a Minister but she or he must become a federal lawmaker within six months from the date of taking an oath to office.

Thapa was earlier appointed as Member of Upper House from Maoist Centre and has got a term of 6 years to continue in the Upper House in a lucky draw held three years before.

The decision from the Supreme Court to revive CPN-UML (Communist Party of Nepal- Unified Marxist Leninist) and CPN-MC (Communist Party of Nepal- Maoist Center) after scrapping the Nepal Communist Party faltered the unification of Nepal's largest Communist Party.

Thapa along with the other 4 ministers at that time decided not to return back to the party.
