Jump to: navigation, search

The Order of precedence of Nepal is the protocol list(hierarchy of important positions) in which the functionaries and officials are listed according to their rank and office in the Government of Nepal. The new order was endorsed by government in Feb 2013. The earlier order was made in 1990 following the restoration of democracy in which PM was in the 10th position after the members of the then royal family. But after the declaration of republic in 2008 there was absence of such a state protocol even more than four years.[1][2][3]
