KP Sharma Oli To Be Sworn In As Nepal Prime Minister Today

Dr. Ayodhyee Prasad Yadav, The Chief Election Commissioner of Nepal submitted recently concluded end results of parliamentary elections to President Bidya Devi Bhandari in Kathmandu Wednesday night. In October 2015, he was elected as the 38th prime minister, a month after the promulgation of a new constitution in September.

Nepal has cycled through 11 prime ministers since the civil war ended in 2006, allowing corruption to flourish and growth to stagnate.

KP Oli, as he is popularly known, succeeds the Nepali Congress Party's Sher Bahadur Deuba, who resigned almost two months after an alliance of communist parties swept the parliamentary and provincial elections.

The Communist alliance won a landslide victory, but the handover of power was delayed by disagreements over how the new election rules in the constitution should be implemented.

"I have successfully completed the task of conducting all levels of elections", said Deuba, whose Nepali Congress Party was routed in the elections to the alliance of the two major Communist parties.

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

His appointment comes at a time when Nepal is going on a federal set-up as provisioned in the new constitution.

A Standing Committee (SC) of the party held in Lalitpur named Mr., Oli as the prime ministerial candidate as he is also the UML's Parliamentary Party leader, senior party leader Surendra Pandey said. He, however, requires support from the Maoists to secure a majority.

The Left Alliance of the CPN-UML, led by Mr. Oli and CPN-Maoist Centre had in December secured 174 seats in the 275-member Parliament in the historic provincial and parliamentary polls that many hope will bring much-needed political stability to the Himalayan nation.

The Maoist Centre and UML are set to merge soon.

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