KATHMANDU: Former Member Secretary of the National Sports Council (NSC) Ramesh Kumar Silwal has been reappointed to the post.
A meeting of Council of Ministers held on Monday evening decided to that effect.
Former captain of the national women’s volleyball team Anju Shrestha and former vice-president of the Nepal Volleyball Association Lil Bahadur Thapa were in the race for the post.
Also, the meeting appointed Shiva Koirala as the Vice-Chairman of the national sports governing body.
NSC had been sans officials since the enforcement of the National Sports Development Act 2020 on July 1.
The newly-introduced Sports Development Act has introduced the provision that says the Member Secretary of NSC will be selected from open competition from the vying candidates by a selection committee led by the Secretary at the Ministry of Youths and Sports.
The committee had forwarded three names before the Cabinet.
