Nepal government in danger or not? PM Prachanda is preparing for trust vote

Floor Test For PM Prachanda Govt In Nepal: The government of the neighboring country Nepal has kept falling and falling in the last 2-3 months. Here the ruling coalition led by Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ (Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda) is claiming a substantial majority. In fact, last month the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) withdrew its support from the government. After this the government was in danger, but now ‘Prachanda’ feels that his government is out of danger.

Therefore, in the coming few days, PM Prachanda has planned to take the trust vote. According to the report of the news agency ANI, the PM will give a floor test in the neighboring country Nepal on March 20 to get the trust vote. The agency gave this news quoting sources in the Prime Minister’s Secretariat. If this happens, this will be Dahal’s second floor test in Parliament after about three months.

Floor test will be held again in Nepal on March 20
PM Dahal had recently discussed with the leaders of the ruling coalition. According to the agency report, he is preparing to get the trust vote on the coming Monday (March 20). His party has claimed to have the support of 10 parties. It is being told that while leading a new turbulent alliance of 10 parties, he has planned a floor test after discussing with the leaders of all the coalition parties.

Why is Nepal government in minority?
The Dahal government is in a minority after the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) withdrew its support. To find out this, the Dahal government is preparing to conduct a floor test in the House. A few days before the UML’s decision, the Rashtriya Prajatantra Party (RSP) also left the government, although it continued its support.

Vote of confidence has to be taken within 30 days
According to Article-100, Clause 2 of the Constitution of Nepal, if any party in the coalition government withdraws its support or breaks down, then in such a situation the Prime Minister has to take a vote of confidence again within 30 days. If the PM fails to get the trust vote, he loses his post. The current Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal had earlier given the floor test on January 10. Then he got 99% votes.
