President of the Nepali Congress party Sher Bahadur Deuba was the sole candidate to run for the election of prime minister, the Parliament Secretariat said on Saturday.
As the deadline expired on Saturday, Deuba was the sole candidate to file his nomination.
Voting is only a convention. We as of now comfortable majority,” said outgoing Deputy PM and Minister for Home Affairs Bimalendra Nidhi after Deuba filed his candidacy at around 11:30am.
