Madhesis to vote against Oli govt during no-trust motion
A two-day meeting of the Federal Alliance here that ended on Monday made the decision to this effect, according to the alliance spokesperson Om Gurung.
The Parliament is scheduled to begin discussion on the no-trust motion on Thursday.Nepali Congress and the Maoists tabled the no-trust motion in the parliament last week against Prime Minister Oli, accusing him of not honouring his past commitments.
The motion was registered by Nepali Congress, CPN-Maoist Centre and CPN-United, whose combined strength is 292 seats in the 598-member Parliament.
The Madhesi parties’ combined strength comes around 50 seats and their support will be crucial for passing the no-trust motion against the Oli government.
The meeting of the alliance, however, has not decided on joining the new government to be formed after the Oli government dissolution, Gurung said.
