Directive Against Political Party Membership for Teachers, Professors, and Staff

Minister of Education, Science, and Technology, Sumana Shrestha, has directed all working teachers, professors, and staff not to take membership in any political party. Furthermore, strict directives have been given that educators and staff should not be members or affiliated with any political party.

Minister Shrestha, through social media, has warned that, until now, teachers from schools and universities could not become members of a political party according to the law. Therefore, any teacher or organized member who becomes a member of a political party will be warned to face legal action according to the law.

Due to the imperative nature of conducting educational activities to raise the quality of education, any member of a political party who is involved in educational activities has been urged to resign from the ministry. "Using students for personal gains must be stopped for the future of the students," she said, adding, "Now, the education sector must be freed from partisan politics."

It has been reminded that teachers, professors, and staff involved in educational activities should not be members of a political party, in accordance with the prevailing law.

Otherwise, it has been warned that the Ministry remains committed to taking legal action according to Section 16(5) of Sub-section (6) of Clause (c) of the Education Act, 2028.
