Today was a very turbulent day in the politics of Nepal. By noon, the way for Sher Bahadur Deuba to become the Prime Minister was clearly visible, but Pushp Kamal Dahal, president of the CPN-Maoist Center, left the meeting angry and announced his separation from the alliance. Later in the evening, he submitted an application to the President regarding his candidature as the next Prime Minister, after which he was appointed by the President as the Prime Minister of Nepal under Article 76 Clause 2 of the Constitution.
The swearing-in ceremony of 68-year-old newly appointed Prime Minister Prachanda will be held on Monday i.e. tomorrow at 4 pm. With this, Prachanda has become the Prime Minister of Nepal for the third time. The first time he became the Prime Minister from 2008 to 2009 and the second time from 2016 to 2017. Prachanda will remain the Prime Minister for the first two and a half years under the agreement. After this, the CPN-UML will take power.
Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias Prachanda has the support of 165 MPs in the 275-member House of Representatives. Prachanda's support includes 6 parties, including 78 for CPN-UML, 32 for CPN-MC, 20 for RSP, 14 for RPP, 12 for JSP, 6 for Janmat and 3 for Civil Immunity Party.
