Nepal’s Parliament is set to elect a new premier on Sunday after Pushpa Kamal Dahal submitted his resignation to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari on May 24.
Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba is expected to be next premier of Nepal.
The Parliament Secretariat has published the schedule for the election of Prime Minister on Friday.
As per the schedule, any legitimate member of the Parliament, willing to file the nomination papers for the post of prime minister, can register his or her candidacy from 11 AM to 4 PM on Saturday at the Parliament Secretariat.
The Parliament Secretariat will publish the final list of candidates after 4:30 PM on Saturday and the voting will be conducted at 11 AM on Sunday.
Prachanda had resigned to pave the way for Nepali Congress Chief Sher Bahadur Deuba to become the next premier, as per an understanding the two leaders had reached in August 2016.
Earlier, President Bhandari allocated one week time for political parties to garner consensus over formation of unity government which expired on Tuesday.
On Sunday, House Speaker Gharti will present the letter and then go for the voting over the proposal.
