Prime Minister of Nepal KP Oli announced a drastic reshuffle of his Cabinet on Friday. This major rejig comes amid political uncertainty.
The reshuffle ushers in seven political figures from Oli’s CPN-UML, and the rest of the ten ministers are inducted for the JSPN’s split faction. The Prime Minister is likely to add more minister from CPN-UML for the seven ministries which are under his purview.
The new Deputy Prime Ministers, along with the new Ministers, were sworn in by President Bidhya Devi Bhandari at the Presidential Office. Additionally, state ministers were also sworn in by the Prime Minister at the same ceremony.
