Oli should either gain a majority vote or leave: Deuba
KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that Prime Minister KP Oli has two options – to prove his majority in the parliament or leave the government.
At a seminar organized on the occasion of the 99th birth anniversary of Mahendra Narayan Nidhi, he said that a no-confidence motion would not have to be tabled after the resignation of the Prime Minister.
“We do not think Oli would resign, but he would either have to resign or gain a majority vote. There is no alternative but this,” said Deuba.
After the Supreme Court did not issue an interim order on the issue of dissolving the parliament, Deuba had said he would accept either election or reinstatement, and urged to not take this statement otherwise.
“We thought the Supreme Court would give a stay order. When it did not do so, suspicions on the court have arisen about reinstatement or re-election, which is why I said that I would accept any decision,” said Deuba.
He further added, “People did not vote for the Congress, but in the end it was understood that Congress is the one. Thank you all for expecting from the Congress.”
He said that the Congress did not want the CPN to split.
