KATHMANDU: The CPN-Maoist Centre is going to give a vote of confidence to the Chief Minister of Koshi State, Kedar Karki.
The Maoist Central State Secretariat meeting on Monday resolved to offer Karki a vote of confidence with the approval of the party central committee.
According to Harka Bahadur Nembang, Chair of the Maoist Central State, although claiming to be the Chief Minister earlier, the Center chose to endorse Karki at the last minute after he failed to secure a majority.
On Wednesday, Chief Minister Karki will take a vote of confidence.
Karki was appointed Chief Minister on Saturday, with the backing of 39 CPN-UML members and 8 Nepali Congress members.
The state legislative party, on the other side, backed Maoist leader Indra Angbo. However, after failing to put it into action, Uddhav Thapa, the leader of the state parliamentary party, resigned. Koshi is now the Congress Parliamentary Party’s leader.
Congress is also expected to give its approval. If the central power coalition decides to support Karki, he will very certainly receive votes from all parties except the RPP.
