KATHMANDU, Aug 31: The Election Commission has directed the government not to make any political appointments, which now violates election code of conduct. 

Issuing a seven-point directive on Thursday, the EC told the government that it is strictly implementing the election code of conduct in order to hold the elections of the provincial and federal parliaments in a free, fair and transparent way. 

As per the directive, the government cannot make appointments in an agency it runs. 

The foreign visits except representing country as in UN, SAARC, and international agencies and regional organizations, are banned for as per the code. Even the transfer and deputation of the employees were not allowed except in a condition of natural disasters, while the transfer and change of the budget remains banned with this directive. 

However, the government has been suggested to take permission from the EC before using private helicopter for any activity. RSS
