Cabinet Reshuffle Predicted Ahead of Investment Summit

Nepal Portfolio of Ministers Cabinet

Just days before the Nepal Investment Summit, Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is considering reshuffling and changing the portfolio of ministers in his Cabinet.

Since a few months, both the Nepal Communist Party Chairs Oli and Pushpa Kumar Dahal have been facing criticism over their government’s performance.

Following this, the NCP Chairs are being pressurized to remove any non-performing ministers.

 According to NCP party leaders, the reshuffle may be done before the Nepal Investment Summit at the end of March, 2019 as it would create a positive impact on donors, investors and development partners, participating in the summit.

The Oli administration had planned to make the investment summit a grand success but has failed to do get positive response.

Important development stakeholders are skeptical about the country’s investment climate, lack of policy reforms and issues related to corruption.

Considering all these issues, there is constant pressure on Oli to recreate a solid cabinet with efficient ministers.
