KP Sharma Oli appointed Nepal's new prime minister

THE leader of Nepal's largest Communist party was named prime minister today, two months after leading his party to a thumping victory in landmark elections billed as a turning point for the impoverished Himalayan nation.

The veteran Nepalese politician became Nepal's prime minister for the fourth time in May previous year after the main opposition party made a decision to end the obstruction of parliament.

K.P. Sharma Oli will head the first government elected under a new national constitution that cements Nepal's transformation from a Hindu monarchy to a federal republic. The President then appointed him as the new PM immediately after caretaker PM Sher Bahadur Deuba resigned.

The meeting chose to officially claim formation of the next government with the support from CPN Maoist Centre led by Prachanda.

Addressing the nation from Prime Minister's Official residence on Thursday morning Prime Minister Deuba announced his resignation from the post deeming his tenure to be successful.

"The next Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli will be taking the oath this evening at 4 PM in Sheetal Niwas", Chetan Adhikari, Press Advisor for KP Oli informed ANI over Phone.




Prime Minister of Sher Bahadur Deuba is submitted his resignation on Thursday.

It has stated that the President can appoint the leader of a party who can complete the majority mark by getting support from other incumbent parties.

The standing committee also gave the nod to a formal merger between the CPN-UML and the CPN Maoist Centre.

As per reports, a standing committee meeting of the UML on Wednesday made a decision to field the party's Chairman K P Sharma Oli as the new prime minister on behalf of the left alliance comprising the UML and the Maoist Center.

In 275 member House of Representatives, the lower house of parliament, the Left Alliance nabbed about two-thirds majority by claiming a win over 174 seats.

The state government also will have cabinet members not exceeding 10 percent of the total number of members in the state assembly.
