“The Prime Minister has recommended Govinda Bandi as law minister,” said Dhakal. “Bandi will be administered the oath of office and secrecy this afternoon.”
Bandi played an active role in preparing the interpretative declaration that paved the way for the ratification of the Millennium Challenge Corporation Nepal Compact.

Since he is not a member of any of the houses of the federal parliament, he can serve as minister for a maximum of six months.
