The Government of Nepal (Nepali: नेपाल सरकार) is the federal executive authority of Nepal. Before the end of the Nepali monarchy in 2006 (became republic in 2008), it was officially known as His Majesty's Government.

The head of state is the president. The prime minister holds the position of the head of executive. The role of president is largely ceremonial. The functions of the government are managed entirely by the prime minister (PM). The PM is appointed by the Parliament.

The heads of constitutional bodies are appointed by the president on the recommendation of Constitutional Council, with the exception of the attorney general (AG). AG is appointed by the president on the recommendation of the prime minister.
