Pandey appointed as Gandaki province CM

Gandaki, May 30

Gandaki Province Assembly parliamentary party leader of the Nepali Congress, Surendra Raj Pandey, has been appointed the Chief Minister of the Gandaki province government.

Province Chief Dilli Raj Bhatta on Wednesday by Article 168 (3) of the constitution appointed Pandey as the leader of the largest party of the Gandaki Province Assembly. Earlier, he was appointed to the post on April 27, 2023.

On Monday, the Supreme Court issued a mandate to appoint Pandey as the Chief Minister, determining that the vote of confidence received by CPN (UML) parliamentary party leader, Khaga Raj Adhikari, was unlawful.

Pandey resigned from the post on April 3 after the government he was leading fell into the minority following the withdrawal of the CPN (Maoist Centre)’s support. There are 27 members of the NC in the 60-member Gandaki Province Assembly.
