Kathmandu, Nepal: Based on the letter sent to Oli by UML and JSP, President Bidyadevi Bhandari has made preparations to appoint Oli as the Prime Minister in accordance with Article 76, Sub-Article 5.
According to a reliable source, Shital Niwas is preparing to present Oli’s claim that he has the support of 121 lawmakers of the CPN-UML and 32 lawmakers of the Janata Samajwadi Party.
Oli, as the leader of the UML parliamentary party and with the signatures of JSP chairman Mahanta Thakur and parliamentary party leader Rajendra Mahato, had demanded support.
However, the signatures of every MP from both parties have not been submitted.
Earlier, a letter was registered in the Parliament Secretariat stating that Mahato had been selected as the leader of the JSP’s parliamentary party. Its purpose is now open.
Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba had submitted the demand of the Prime Minister with a letter of support from 149 MPs. However, Oli has already claimed that JSP has a lot of support for him.
Some UML lawmakers have reacted by saying that they have not signed Deuba to become the prime minister. This has also shocked Deuba.
