Kathmandu, July 7 (CNS) -- The 12 members' technocratic government headed by the chief justice Khila Raj Regmi has 'no wish' to make the property details of its ministers including Regmi himself known in the public, which resulted in the common tradition aimed for good governance come to an end.

 The all members of interim election council has so far furnished their property reports at the office of the prime minister and council of ministers (OPMCM) but publicising such details depends upon the 'wish' of individual members of cabinet, Krishna Hari Baskota, secretary of OPMCM told Xinhua on Sunday.

As there is no mandatory legal provision to ensure the public statement of the property details of the member of cabinet, it depends up to the individual minister whether or not to publicize his/her property details, he added.

The interim election council headed by the chief justice comprises 11 ministers having the background of bearing high ranking bureaucratic posts.

The earlier political parties led governments had been following the common tradition of publicizing the updated statements of the properties of the prime minister and the individual ministers.

The anti-graft law of the country has directed each individual who joins a public office to declare the asset details of their family members as well.
Section 50 of the Prevention of Corruption Act 2059 has stated that whoever joins a public office should, within 60 days from the date of joining the public office, and whoever is engaged in a public office should, within 60 days from the date of completion of each fiscal year, submit the up-dated statement of property in his name or in the name of his family members.

''The practice of disclosing the property details indeed promote the good governance culture, but once a public office bearer furnishes the details to concerned office, we cannot force them to make it public,'' Keshav Prasad Ghimire, assistant spokesperson of Commission for Investigation of the Abuse of Authority (CIAA) said.

All of the former Prime ministers of the Republican Nepal, Dr. Baburam Bhattarai, Madhav Kumar Nepal, Jhalanath Khanal and Puspha Kamal Dahal had publicized their property details while they were assuming the post.
