KATHMANDU — The CPN Maoist Center has decided to file a no confidence motion against the government at the Parliament meeting on Wednesday after prime minister Oli decided to face parliament.
CPN Moist Center, one of the main ruling coalition partners of the government, had withdrawn support from the CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli-led coalition government on Tuesday claiming that the Prime Minister’s party had failed to implement the past agreements made with it.
According to CPN Maoist Center spokesperson Pampha Bhusal, the party would file a no confidence motion against the government if the Prime Minister did not step down himself.
After the Maoist withdrawal, the coalition government was pushed to a minority.
According to the provision, the Prime Minister would be relieved from his post if he resigned or if no confidence motion is passed by a majority of the total existing members of the Parliament.
UDMF not to join new govt
After the new political development in the country, the Mades based parties have said that they would not join the new government at this time.
It will need the support of at least 298 members of the existing 595 members of the Parliament to form a new government and UDMF can play a vital role to make majority.
The combined strength of NC and CPN-MC is now 289 as NC has 207 members and CPN-MC has 82 members. They will need at least nine more members to form the new government.
Sadbhawana Party leader Laxman Lal Karna said the UDMF would not join the government until its demands were addressed.Follow @gorkhapost
