Prime Minister Dahal to seek vote of confidence on MondayThe prime minister will go for a trust vote again as the CPN-UML and the Rastriya Prajatnatra Party have withdrawn their support to the government.
Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal is set to seek a vote of confidence in the House of Representatives on Monday.
The prime minister has written to the Parliament Secretariat asking the latter to include the voting agenda among other agendas of the House meeting and to make the necessary arrangements for the same, according to Ek Ram Giri, spokesperson for the Parliament secretariat.
“The prime minister has written to the secretariat, requesting to include the agenda of seeking a vote of confidence in the meeting scheduled for March 20,” said spokesperson Giri.
The prime minister, who won the floor test on January 10, will undergo the trust vote again as the CPN-UML and the Rastriya Prajatantra Party have withdrawn their support to the government after the CPN (Maoist Centre) ditched the alliance with the UML to form a new coalition with the Nepali Congress.
Dahal has said he will expand his Cabinet only after he wins the vote of confidence.
