Author(s): Ghimire Hom Prasad
Abstract: This paper presents an overview of the parliamentary Finance committee (PFCN) of Nepal. Typically, a democratic country's regime includes three types of systems. Parliamentary system, presidential system, and semi-presidential model. Nepal has adopted a parliamentary system and the West Ministry model of government. The position of head of state, the president, in Nepal's parliamentary form of government is ceremonial and has no real powers. In this form of government, the head of the government is the Prime Minister, who has all the real powers. The executive branch of government is exercised by a group of legislators who hold a majority in the House of Representatives (HoRs) under Nepal's parliamentary system, which unites the legislative and executive branches of government. It is assumed that all the perspectives and shades of the opinion of the parliament are reflected through the parliamentary committees because they are representative organs of the legislature in terms of both composition and membership. The finance committee has a vital role in HoRs. In this paper characteristics and working outcomes of PFCN during the Parliamentary period of 2017 to 2022 have been shown.
