As defeat stared on his face, Prime Minister K P Oli has decided to tender his resignation from the post without facing the vote on the No-Confidence in the afternoon.

According to an aide to the Prime Minister, Oli would announce his resignation from the floor of the House, and submit it to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari soon after Parliament session is adjourned Sunday.

He will also be recommending to the President that Article 305 meant for removing any unforeseen hurdle in the implementation of the constitution be invoked in order to dispel the prevailing confusion in the constitution in electing a new Prime Minister once Oli is out.

That paves the way for election of Maoist Chief Pushpa Kamal Dahal who has been backed by the Nepali Congress, to the post.
