Gandaki CM Pandey resigns


KATHMANDU – Chief Minister of Gandaki Province, Surendra Raj Pandey, has resigned from the post. He submitted his resignation to Gandaki Province Chief, Dilli Raj Bhatta, today.

Chief Minister Pandey-led government was in minority after the CPN (Maoist Centre), a partner in the ruling alliance, withdrew its support to the government on March 6.

Though there is a constitutional provision that vote of confidence should be taken within 30 days after withdrawal of support, CM Pandey resigned from the post without seeking a trust vote.

Chief Minister Pandey said he resigned from the post as the situation did not warrant a vote of confidence after the change in power equation among the parties. Out of 60 members in the Province Assembly, support of 31 members is required for forming the government. There are 27 members of the Nepali Congress, 22 of CPN (UML), seven of the CPN (Maoist Centre), two of Rastriya Prajatantra Party and one independent member in the Gandaki Province Assembly.
