The main target of the Deuba-led Nepali Government was to complete the three phases of the country's most-awaited landmark elections needed for the implementation of new Nepali Constitution.

Kathmandu: Chairman of the CPN-UML Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli will become the 41st Prime Minister of Nepal with incumbent Sher Bahadur Deuba set to resign from the post on Thursday. The left alliance has already presented its claim for the new government to President presenting UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli as the new PM.

As per reports, a standing committee meeting of the UML on Wednesday chose to field the party's Chairman K P Sharma Oli as the new prime minister on behalf of the left alliance comprising the UML and the Maoist Center. But the handover of power after last year's polls was delayed by disagreements over how the new election rules in the constitution should be implemented.

Ahead of Oli's appointment, outgoing Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, submitted his resignation after the Election Commission submitted the final results of the elections held in December to the President. The Nepali population is hopeful that this new government will change the fate of Nepal and will develop the nation. In recent years, Nepal's neighbours - India and China - have poured investment into the small, but strategically important, nation, that sits astride the Himalayan mountains between the two giants.
