KP Sharma Oli becomes Nepal PM for second time

"A Standing Committee (SC) of the party held in Lalitpur city named Oli as the prime ministerial candidate as he is also the UML's Parliamentary Party leader", PTI quoted senior party leader Surendra Pandey as saying.

Deuba handed power to a new government after completing the due constitutional process. Reports state that former health minister Girirajmani Pokharel submitted the resignation of all the ministers - 10 union and six ministers of state - from the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Centre) to Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba.

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

CPN-UML chairperson K P Sharma Oli became Prime Minister for the second time over two months after his Left alliance routed the ruling Nepali Congress in the country's historic parliamentary and local polls. As per reports by PTI, the move came almost 3 months after Deuba stripped of their portfolios after the party forged an electoral alliance with the CPN-UML in the recently held federal and provincial assembly elections.
