Seven-Day Ultimatum: Gandaki Province Chief presses for Chief Minister successor

KATHMANDU: The Gandaki Province Chief wasted no time in pushing for a new Chief Minister following the recent resignation of Surendra Raj Pandey.

Political parties have been given just seven days to nominate their candidates for the coveted position.

With a deadline set for April 9 at 3 PM, the pressure is on for parties to come together and establish a leadership structure in line with Article 168 of Nepal's Constitution.

This provision dictates that the leader of the parliamentary party with majority support in the Provincial Assembly assumes the role of Chief Minister.

In the absence of a clear majority, the Province Chief holds the responsibility of appointing a Chief Minister capable of securing backing from multiple parties represented in the Assembly.
