Nepal’s Prime Minister, Prachanda, has secured a vote of confidence in parliament, with the support of Sher Bahadur Deuba.

The vote of confidence came after a motion was moved in parliament by Prime Minister Prachanda’s party, the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Centre), following weeks of political uncertainty and speculation about the stability of the government. The motion was passed by a majority of lawmakers present in the House, with Prachanda receiving the support of over two-thirds of the members.

This victory for Prachanda comes as a relief for the government, which had been facing criticism and calls for resignation from opposition parties. The opposition had claimed that the government had failed to address the country’s economic and social issues, and had called for new elections.

However, Prime Minister Prachanda had defended his government’s record, stating that they had made significant progress in areas such as infrastructure development, poverty reduction and tourism promotion. He also highlighted the government’s efforts to bring peace and stability to the country, following years of civil war.

In a surprising move, Sher Bahadur Deuba, the leader of the opposition Nepali Congress party, also supported the motion, despite his party’s previous calls for new elections. Deuba stated that his party’s decision was based on the need for political stability and continuity in the country. He also called for the government to address the concerns of the opposition and work towards finding common ground on important issues.

The vote of confidence in parliament is a clear indication that Prime Minister Prachanda’s government still has the support of the majority of lawmakers, and will likely lead to a period of political stability in Nepal. This support of the leader of opposition, Sher Bahadur Deuba and his party also highlights the increasing cooperation between different political parties and factions in the country, for the betterment of the nation.
