KATHMANDU, March 1: The eight-member alliance is currently busy devising power-sharing strategies.
At the head of the presidential election, this alliance is preparing to organize a meeting at the provincial level in the provinces.
With Nepal’s presidential elections fast approaching, the government is likely to expand the Cabinet only after the elections, according to Ramesh Lekhak, leader of Nepal’s parliamentary Congress party. Likewise, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal is also scheduled to give a vote of confidence.
The Nepalese Congress has bid for 10 ministries, including Interior or Finance and Foreign Affairs or Health, while the CPN (United Socialist) and Janata Samajbadi Party have bid for three ministries each.
Similarly, the Loktantrik Samajbadi party has bid for a ministry, while the Nagarik Unmukti party has decided not to go into government until Resham Chaudhary is released.
Also, Prime Minister Dahal has started preparations to welcome the Rastriya Swatantra Party into the government as well. If the party joins the government, it is likely to get three ministries.
In addition, the Congress of Nepal will form its government in Sudurpaschim province, the JSP in Madhesh province and the CPN (Maoist Center) in Bagmati and Karnali provinces and a new eight-member coalition. In addition, the Nepali Congress has bid for the post of Chief Minister in four provinces.
