Coalition will meet Tuesday to decide to share ministries

The ruling coalition will meet on Tuesday afternoon to decide on a cabinet expansion.

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has had trouble expanding the cabinet due to a lack of agreement between the parties on the division of ministries.

Prime Minister Dahal had been planning to expand the Cabinet immediately after passing the floor test on March 20, but has been unable to do so due to a lack of agreement between the parties.

All parties in the House, except CPN-UML, RPP and the Nepal Workers and Peasants Party, voted for the government during the floor test, and all those who voted for Dahal, except Rastriya Janamorcha Party, are eager to join the government. .

Dahal met with Nepali Congress (NC) Speaker Sher Bahadur Deuba and CPN (United Socialist) Chairman Madhav Kumar Nepal on Monday to discuss the exchange of ministries and contemporary politics.

The leaders agreed to hold a meeting of the 10 coalition parties on Tuesday to decide on the division of ministries before the cabinet expansion.

The Cabinet currently has four ministers and one state minister from the CPN (Maoist Centre) led by Dahal and a minister from the Janamat Party with Prime Minister Dahal overseeing 16 ministries after the Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP), the RPP and the CPN- UML will leave the government.
