The Supreme Court (SC) has issued an interim order in the name of the government barring it from implementing the decision to withdraw the names of 14 ambassadors recommended to different countries.

A single bench of Chief Justice Sushila Karki issued the order to not implement and have the decision to withdraw the names implemented.

The Parliamentary Hearings Special Committee (PHSC) has already cleared the names of seven out of 21 recommendations coming from the preceding government. The seven, who cleared the hearings, are from the country's foreign service.

The Council of Ministers on April 18 recommended names for ambassadorial appointment in 22 countries.

However, the new government on August 5 took the decision to withdraw the names of 21 individuals.
