Mr. Dhakal took oath of his office from President H.E. Bidhya Devi Bhandari, along with three other government ministers, on December 24, 2015, at the Presidential Palace.

After the oath ceremony, Mr. Dhakal, along with his wife, Blessie, visited UPF-Nepal’s Peace Embassy building, where they were greeted by members of UPF-Nepal and Ambassadors for Peace.

Welcoming Mr. Dhakal to the Peace Embassy was Mr. Santosh Paudel, vice-chair of UPF-Nepal.
