Nepal PM Oli loses vote of confidence

Tuesday, 11 May 2021 | PTI | Kathmandu

Nepal Prime Minister P Sharma Oli lost a trust vote in the House of Representatives on Monday, in a fresh setback to the embattled premier seeking to tighten his grip on power after the CPN (Maoist Centre) led by Pushpakamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ withdrew support to his Government.

Prime Minister Oli secured 93 votes in the Lower House of Parliament during a special session convened on the directives of President Bidya Devi Bhandari.

Oli, 69, required at least 136 votes in the 275-member House of Representatives to win the confidence motion as four members are currently under suspension. A total of 124 members voted against the confidence motion while 15 members stayed neutral, Speaker Agni Sapkota announced. The session was attended by 232 lawmakers.

With this, Prime Minister Oli is automatically relieved from his post as per Article 100 (3).
