Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who expanded the cabinet on Friday, is also preparing to expand the cabinet on Sunday. Oli still holds seven of the ministries vacated by former Maoist lawmakers under his control. It is understood that Oli is now preparing to bring a new face in the cabinet. It is said that there is a possibility of including those who are very close to him and some who have left the Maoists.
It is said that Mahesh Basnet, who is considered closest to Oli, is also likely to become a minister. Since the cabinet reshuffled on Friday, Prime Minister Oli alone has been in charge of seven ministries. There are also some important ministries, including the Home Ministry.
Prime Minister Oli is preparing to appoint a minister in it. According to sources in Baluwatar, he is likely to appoint leaders from the UML and the UCPN (Maoist) as ministers.
According to sources, priority has been given to those who have lost their state parliament seats due to the action taken by the Maoist center. Sources claim that Jwalakumari Sah of Province No. 2 is almost certain to be the minister. Similarly, UML’s Mahesh Basnet and Narad Muni Rana Tharu are at the forefront of the list.
