Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has resigned paving way for Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba to become the next Prime Minister. The resignation is to honor an accord signed in August 2016 when Prachanda was elected the prime minister with Deuba’s support.
According to the agreement, Prachanda was to remain in office until the local elections were held while polls at the provincial and central levels were to be conducted under Deuba as the Prime Minister. He was elected as the 39th prime minister of Nepal after forging an alliance with the Nepali Congress on August 3, 2016.
