Pandey appointed as Gandaki Province CM

GANDAKI:  Nepali Congress Parliamentary Party leader Surendra Raj Pandey has been appointed as the Chief Minister of Gandaki province government.

Province Chief Dilli Raj Bhatta on Wednesday appointed Pandey as the Chief Minister in accordance with Article 168 (3) of the constitution.

Earlier, he was appointed to the post on April 27, 2023.

The Supreme Court on Monday had issued a mandate to appoint Pandey as the Chief Minister, determining that the vote of confidence received by CPN-UML parliamentary party leader, Khaga Raj Adhikari, was unlawful.

Pandey had resigned from the post on April 3 after the government he was leading fell into minority following the withdrawal of CPN (Maoist Centre)’s support.

There are 27 members of the NC in the 60-member Gandaki Province Assembly.
