In Nepal, CPN (UML) Ministers resign en masse

All the eight ministers representing the CPN-UML in the current coalition led by Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda have resigned en masse. The ministers handed over their resignations to Prime Minister Prachanda earlier today.     

Prior to this, Chairperson of CPN (UML) KP Sharma Oli had instructed the UML Ministers to resign. The secretariat meeting chaired by Oli on Tuesday had urged Prime Minister Prachanda to resign from his post within 24 hours to pave the way for a new government.     

After Prime Minister Prachanda did not resign during the deadline, all UML ministers submitted their resignation collectively to the Prime Minister  this afternoon.     

Party chair Oli had also sent a letter to Prime Minister Prachanda withdrawing his party’s support to the government, saying that the initiative to form a new government was taken with the aim of providing political stability with the formation of a government of national consensus.
