Nepal cabinet reshuffled for seventh time, 5 ministries still remain with PM Dahal

In less than one month since the formation of the new government, the ruling coalition of Nepal has been embroiled in rift and dissatisfaction resulting in partial and incomplete expansion of the cabinet.
Pushpa Kamal Dahal aka Prachanda reshuffled the cabinet after weeks of hiatus and was only able to induct 11 ministers which included a state minister. The newly appointed ministers took an oath of office and secrecy from President Ramchandra Paudel at Sheetal Niwas, the President’s Office. It’s just been about three months since Nepal PM Prachanda had undergone the second round of floor tests and the seventh round of cabinet reshuffle which is yet to give a full cabinet. Supported by 10 parties in the March 20 vote of confidence who have come on board the ruling coalition, Dahal on Friday managed to take 5 parties on board.
“Let me finish the cabinet formation then after this government would be remembered for its record-keeping works,” Prime Minister Dahal addressed a closed-door party meeting on Friday a few hours before the oath ceremony.
