Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal plans to take the vote of confidence next week

A letter specifying that Prime Minister Dahal has tried to take the floor test on Monday reached the Secretariat of the Federal Parliament, according to the secretary’s spokesman, Ekram Giri.

Dahal had left the coalition with the Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN (United Socialist) on December 25 and became prime minister with the support of CPN-UML, Rastriya Swatantra Party, RPP, Janata Samajwadi Party ( JSP), the Janamat Party and the Nagarik Unmukti Party after NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba refused to appoint him as prime minister first.

He easily passed the January 10 test with 268 votes after all parties in the House of Representatives (HoR) except the Nepal Workers and Peasants Party and Rastriya Janamorcha voted for the government.

But he is constitutionally bound to seek the floor test again after CPN-UML and RPP left the government following the decision by NC, CPN (Maoist Center), Janata Samajwadi Party (JSP) and CPN (Unified Socialist) to revive the pre-election coalition.
