Kathmandu, April 27
Surendra Raj Pandey of the Nepali Congress has been appointed the chief minister whereas in Gandaki.
Pandey will lead the provincial government with the support of the CPN-Maoist Centre among other parties.
Earlier, within a week, Khaga Raj Adhikari and Lila Giri–representing the CPN-UML, lost the vote of confidence in the provincial assemblies in Gandaki and Lumbini respectively, requiring the province chiefs (governors) to call parties to prove majority and claim for the chief ministership.
Accordingly, in both provinces, the Nepali Congress submitted applications with support from the CPN-Maoist Centre among other parties.
In Lumbini, however, Dilli Bahadur Chaudhary is yet to be appointed.
