Political Crisis Deepens In Nepal, PM K P Oli Loses Vote Of Confidence

Nepal’s Prime Minister K P Oli On Monday lost the trust vote in the parliament ending his stint as the Country prime minister. Local media reports that Oli will soon submit his resignation to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari.

According to the reports, the vote of confidence that Oli placed before the House secured 93 ‘Ayes’ votes against 124 ‘Nos’. Altogether 15 members abstained.

There were only 232 members of 271 present in the House. Those who abstained or absented included 28 dissident members from the Ruling Nepal Communist Party — Unified Marxist Leninist.

PM Oli faces a confidence vote after alliance partner NCP (Nationalist Congress Party) withdrew support last month.

Oli faced defeat in Parliament and exit from power after leading the government for 38 months.
