Kathmandu, October 8
Bagmati Chief Minister Ashta Laxmi Shakya is seeking the vote of confidence in the Provincial Assembly on Sunday.
Whereas the provincial government has already summoned the assembly meeting for Sunday, Shakya also filed a proposal to seek the vote of confidence on Friday.
As her government has already been pushed into the minority, Shakya will certainly lose the vote and hence the chief ministerial position. Shakya was appointed the chief minister as the leader of the party commanding a majority in the assembly on August 18.
The opposition alliance consisting of parties represented in the federal government have already decided to nominate Rajendra Prasad Pandey of the CPN-Unified Socialist as the next chief minister.
Shakya was required to prove the legislative body’s confidence in her to continue her government as the party she represented, CPN-UML, split with the formation of the CPN-Unified Socialist.
