KATHMANDU, April 19: Speaker Devraj Ghimire has administered the oath of office and secrecy to the newly-elected lawmaker Hasina Khan. Khan was elected a Member of the House of Representatives through the proportional representation electoral system.

Speaker Ghimire administered the oath to Khan amidst a program organized at the Parliament Secretariat in Singha Durbar on Friday.

On the occasion, the Speaker Ghimire handed the Parliament's logo to Khan and congratulated her on her election as the Member of Parliament.

As per the Parliament's laws, any newly-elected Member of Parliament has to take an oath of office and secrecy before the Speaker to be eligible to take part in the parliament's meetings.

Secretary-General of the Federal Parliament Secretariat, Padma Prasad Pandeya, extended congratulations and best wishes to Khan and also handed a copy of the Constitution of Nepal and the Parliament Regulations and other documents that the Secretariat provides to the lawmakers.

The 29-year-old Khan was elected from the Janata Samajbadi Party. The Election Commission had informed the Parliament Secretariat that she had been elected to the vacant post following the death of Manju Ansari Sharma some time back. 

"I will strive to fulfill the responsibilities of a lawmaker effectively and especially I will raise the women's issues in parliament," she said.  

Born at Pokharbhindi of Rohini rural municipality in Rupandehi district, lawmaker Khan currently lives in Duduwa rural municipality-3 of Banke district. Her present working area is in Banke.
