By Thursday, Oli, who expressed reluctance to seek a trust vote, reached the opposition party’s president to claim it again. Nepal’s opposition parties have submitted a letter of support of 149 MPs to the President, claiming to form the government. Opposition parties are set to form the government under the leadership of Sher Bahadur Deuba, the president of the National Congress. President Vidyadevi Bhandari gave the opposition time till five o’clock on Friday to present the claim to form the government. Meanwhile, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli also suddenly reached the President and claimed to have the support of 153 MPs. He claims to have the support of 121 members of his party as well as 32 Janata Samajwadi Party-Nepal MPs.
