Political deadlock continues in Nepal, President appeals to form new govt within one-week

KATHMANDU: Nepal’s President Bidhya Devi Bhandari has called upon the political parties of the country to formation the government within a week after the national elections were held last month which produced inconclusive results.

However, Elections were held in Nepal last month but no coalition could get a clear majority.

The ruling coalition led by the Nepali Congress Party has got the maximum number of seats. But this alliance also has two seats less than the majority.

This coalition needs the support of smaller parties to form the government.

The country’s ruling alliance, headed by Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba’s Nepali Congress and the main opposition party, Nepal Communist Unified Marxist-Leninist (UML), will require the support of smaller groups for the new government’s formation. 

In 2008, the 239-year-old monarchy was abolished in Nepal, after which the nation of 30 million people which shares its borders with India and China, has seen the establishment of a new government ten times. 

It is believed that the Nepali Congress may again nominate Sher Bahadur Deuba for the post of Prime Minister.

New parties have also performed well in the elections held in Nepal.

The office of President Bidhya Devi Bhandari released a statement which read, “Any member of the House of Representatives, who can command the majority with the support of two or more parties” should make a claim to the prime minister’s position by 5 pm (11:15 am GMT) on December 25.
