Oli to be sworn in as 41st PM of Nepal today

The Election Commission has already submitted the parliamentary poll results to the President which has now paved way for the formation of the new government.

Earlier today, Nepal Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba resigned from his post, paving the way for the CPN-UML Chairman.

Nepal has cycled through 11 prime ministers since the civil war ended in 2006, allowing corruption to flourish and growth to stagnate. They met President Bidhya Devi Bhandari on Thursday morning to present their choice, The Himalayan Times reported.

Deuba was elected as the 40th Prime Minister June 6 with the support from CPN (Maoist Centre) which is now a part of Left alliance and opting for merger with CPN-UML.




An alliance of two major communist parties is expected to take over power when the new parliament is seated.

The long delay has dampened the optimism that accompanied the polls, when many voters cast their ballots hoping a new government would bring much-needed stability and development.

Olis party CPN-UML secured 121 seats in the 275-member Parliament and became the largest party in the Parliament. The ruling Nepali Congress got only 63 seats. "A Standing Committee (SC) of the party held in Lalitpur city named Oli as the prime ministerial candidate as he is also the UML's Parliamentary Party leader", PTI quoted senior party leader Surendra Pandey as saying. The left alliance partner CPN (Maoist Center) will prop up his claim.

He had also served as Minister of Home Affairs in 1994�??1995.
