President of Nepal

President of Nepal

The position of President of Nepal ( _ne. राष्ट्रपति) constitutes the head of State of Nepal and was created after the country was declared a republic in May 2008. Ram Baran Yadav, elected in July 2008, is the first and current President.

History of the Presidency

Under the Interim Constitution adopted in January 2007, all powers of governance were removed from the King of Nepal, and the Nepalese Constituent Assembly elected in the 2008 Constituent Assembly election was to decide in its first meeting whether to continue the monarchy or to declare a republic. On 28 May 2008 the Assembly voted to abolish the monarchy.

The Fifth Amendment to the Interim Constitution established that the President, Vice-President, Prime Minister and Constituent Assembly chairman and vice-chairman would all be elected on the basis of a "political understanding". However, if one was not forthcoming, they could be elected by a simple majority.


The President is to be formally addressed as 'His Excellency'. [ [ - Nepal's No.1 News Portal ] ]
