PM Oli expelled from Communist Party in Nepal

In a major political development in Nepal, the caretaker Prime Minister KP Oli was removed from ruling Nepal Communist Party by a Central Committee Meeting of the splinter party.

“His membership has been revoked,” a spokesperson for the splinter group, Narayan Kaji Shrestha.

This will further create a rift with the Prachanda faction.

According to Article 93(1) of the Constitution, the interval between two sessions of parliament should not be more than 6 months. Due to internal conflict in the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP), KP Sharma Oli recommended the dissolution before a no-confidence motion could be tabled.
