The House of Representatives (HoR) unanimously passed the bill related to Public Document Authentication, and also formed a panel to amend the HoR Regulations — 2006. The HoR had passed the Regulations on June 10
The Regulations is being amended because the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee could not function, as a result of which the government could not name three candidates for the purpose of appointing one of them as an ambassador.
The Regulations states that the Special Committee should conduct a hearing on nominated candidates for the post of ambassadors and heads of constitutional bodies and furnish its suggestion to the government within 10 working days.The members of the committee told reporters that the new provisions had already been discussed and agreed to at the top level and the draft of the amendment would be tabled in the HoR at the earliest.
