UML names KP Sharma Oli as Nepal's next PM

Sher Bahadur Deuba resigns K P Sharma Oli becomes Nepal PM

The leader of the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist Leninist), Khadga Prasad Oli, is expected to become the next prime minister.

Sher Bahadur Deuba served just eight months as prime minister, overseeing the first elections to be held under a new national constitution meant to cement Nepal's transformation from Hindu monarchy to a federal republic.

Oli, who claimed the portfolio with the President Bidhya Devi Bhandari this morning, will be taking the oath this evening at 4 pm in Shital Niwas.

The CPN-UML on Thursday picked party Chairman K.P. Sharma Oli as the next Prime Minister of Nepal, a senior leader of the party said, over two months after the successful conclusion of historic parliamentary polls.

Sher Bahadur Deuba says he has fulfiled his responsibilities by holding 3 phases of elections for the implementation of the new constitution. The Party Unification Coordination Committee later met at the same venue to finalise issues related to formation of the new government and the parties' unification. So even if the country's two largest communist parties eventually merge, cracks could appear within the ruling coalition midway through Oli's tenture.

According to reports, KP Oli will take over as the new PM. Deuba's resignation comes in the wake of the UML alleging that he was unnecessarily prolonging his stay in the government over ambiguous constitutional provisions.

It had also secured an overwhelming majority in the upper house of Parliament with 39 seats, paving the way for the leftist alliance to form the country's next government.

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.

An alliance of Oli's main Communist party and the former Maoist rebels trounced Deuba's Nepali Congress party in last year's polls.

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

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