10 different governments have been in power since 2008

Political stability has been a major challenge in Nepal since the end of the 239-year-old monarchy in 2008. Since then, 10 different governments have been in power in the country. There are three main parties of Nepal – Nepali Congress, Communist Unified Marxist-Leninist (UML) Party and Maoist Centre. These parties have led different coalitions in the past. However, due to power struggle and infighting, none completed 5 years in office.

Who will compete this time?

This time in Nepal, the contest is being seen between the Nepali Congress Party and the UML Party. The Nepali Congress currently leads the four-party ruling coalition. Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, who leads the Nepali Congress party, has forged an alliance with the Maoist Center Party, a major group of former Maoist rebels. The UML party, led by 70-year-old KP Sharma Oli, is in a tenuous alliance with a royalist group.
