With this, President Vidyadevi Bhandari announced that she would give a chance to Oli, the leader of the largest party, to form the government again. Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli, who lost in the no-confidence motion, was sworn in for the third time on Friday. Oli is scheduled to face a test of strength in the House of Representatives within 30 days.

Former Prime Minister Prachanda and the CPN (Maoist) party have expressed support for Nepali Congress president Sher Bahadur Devba. However, the Janata Samajwadi Party was divided. Although JSP president Upendra Yadav announced his support, another president, Mahanta Thakur, opposed it. The Nepali Congress party has 61 members, Prachanda 49 and the JSP 32. With all the opposition failing, Oli was given another chance to become prime minister.
KP Sharma Oli was sworn in as Nepal’s Prime Minister for the third time on Friday, days after he lost a vote of confidence in Parliament. President Bidya Devi Bhandari administered the oath of office and secrecy to Oli, 69, at a ceremony at Shital Niwas, after he was reappointed to the post on Thursday night as the Opposition parties failed to secure majority seats in Parliament to form a new government.
