PM Modi congratulates Nepal PM for winning vote of confidence, says looks forward to working with him

New Delhi: Sher Bahadur Deuba, Nepal's prime minister, received 165 votes in the House of Representatives on Sunday.

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday congratulated Nepal Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba for winning the vote of confidence in the House of Representatives and said he looks forward to working with him to strengthen the unique partnership in all sectors and strengthen deep-rooted people-to-people ties between India and Nepal.

 

In a tweet, PM Modi said, "Congratulations Prime Minister @DeubaSherbdr, and best wishes for a successful tenure. I look forward to working with you to further enhance our unique partnership in all sectors, and strengthen our deep-rooted people-to-people ties."

 

Sher Bahadur Deuba, Nepal's prime minister, received 165 votes in the House of Representatives on Sunday.

 

Deuba secured 165 votes in his favor, while 83 votes were cast against him. Likewise, one lawmaker remained neutral. Meanwhile, 249 lawmakers had participated in the voting process.

 

Earlier, the Supreme Court of Nepal, in its verdict, ordered Bhandari to appoint Deuba as the successor of now caretaker Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.

 

146 members of the House of Representatives (HoR) had reached out to Supreme Court with a writ petition to demand the house restoration and appoint Sher Bahadur Deuba as the next prime minister on May 24. This was after Nepal President had refused to allow Deuba to form a new government as per Article 76 (5) and dissolution of the House.

 

With Oli failing to secure the vote of confidence on May 10, Bhandari on May 13 had appointed Oli as prime minister under Article 76 (3) of the constitution as the party leader with the highest number of members in the House.

 

A week after his appointment, Oli, on May 20, in a sudden move, recommended that the President invoked Article 76 (5) to choose a new prime minister. When a prime minister nominated under Article 76 (3) fails the trust vote, the President invokes Article 76 (5).

 

Oli, however, neither sought the trust vote nor resigned, creating a situation in which a prime minister was asking the President to appoint a prime minister.
