Nepali Congress Chairman Sushil Koirala was on Monday elected Prime Minister of the country – fifth in as many years of political instability.
Koirala, the only candidate who filed his nomination in the Parliament secretariat, secured 405 votes – constituting more than two-third, out of total 553 present.
He was backed by his own party, the Nepali Congress, Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist and others.
However, the Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoists and the pro-monarchy Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal, and most of the Madhes centric parties voted against Koirala.
In his brief address, Koirala said while having a constitution delivered within a year with good governance would be his government’s priority, he will also make every attempt to strengthen Nepal’s relations with two immediate neighbours India, China and other members of the international community.
