KATHMANDU, Jan 29: Rabi Lamichhane has acquired his Nepali citizenship certificate today.

On Sunday, he obtained the certificate of Nepali citizenship from the District Administration Office (DAO) in Kathmandu. Lamichhane’s secretariat coordinator Deepak Bohara said that according to the order of the Supreme Court, Lamichhane's Nepali citizenship was restored today by the DAO Kathmandu.

Although Lamichhane renounced his US citizenship, he did not get Nepali citizenship again.

The Supreme Court dismissed Rabi Lamichhane's position as a Member of Parliament on Friday, ruling that he had not completed the legal process for reviving his Nepali citizenship after renouncing his US citizenship.

After the court's decision, Lamichhane resigned from the post of Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister on Friday. He was elected from Chitwan Constituency-2 in the election held on November 20.
