Nepal Parliament continues deliberation on no-confidence motion

Kathmandu, July 23 : The Nepal Parliament on Saturday continued discussion on a no-confidence motion filed by the Nepali Congress and Communist Party of Nepal- Maoist Centre (CPN-MC) against Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli. The no-trust motion against the Oli was registered for discussion by both parties on July 13. CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal had yesterday evening tabled the no-confidence motion at the Parliament meeting, reports the Himalayan Times. Dahal during the meeting told the Parliament that he was compelled to move the no-trust motion against Oli as he continued to obstruct the efforts to promote national unity and to forge national consensus. Speaker Onsari Gharti had allotted three days for debate on the no-trust motion. Reports suggest that motion would be put to vote on Sunday. Oli will respond to the no-trust motion before voting takes place on the no-trust motion.
