Political crisis in Nepal: PM KP Oli resigns

Nepal Prime Minister K P Oli submits his resignation ahead of no-confidence vote; political crisis erupts in Nepal after two alliance partners withdrew support from the ruling coalition, accusing PM Oli of not honouring power-sharing deal.

Oli, who became Nepal’s Prime Minister last October heading Nepal’s eighth government in the past 10 years, has been facing a no-trust motion after the Maoists withdrew support from the coalition government.

Oli tendered his resignation after two key ruling alliance partners, Madhesi People’s Rights Forum-Democratic and Rastriya Prajatantra Party — decided to support the no-confidence motion tabled against him by the Nepali Congress and the CPN-Maoist Centre led by Prachanda.
