Kathmandu: Members of the Nepal’s Federal Parliament were sworn in here on Sunday, three months after the country held the elections in November and December last year.

Mahantha Thakur, a senior parliamentarian, administered the oath of office and secrecy to the parliamentarians of the 275-member House of Representatives or Lower House of the Federal Parliament, at 4:00 p.m. local time.

Tara Devi Bhatta, another senior parliamentarian, administered the oath of office and secrecy to the members of the 59-member National Assembly or the Upper House of the Federal Parliament, an hour later.

The oath-taking ceremony took place a day before convening the first meeting of the bicameral parliament in nearly two decades in the Himalayan nation, officials said.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari is scheduled to address the first session of the Federal Parliament on Monday, according to a spokesman of the parliament.
