Koirala appointed Prime Minister

King Gyanendra on Thursday appointed Koirala to the post of Prime Minister “as per the unanimous decision of the seven-party alliance and Article 36 (1) of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Nepal 1990,” a communiqué from the Royal Palace Secretariat said.

This will be Koirala’s fifth stint as the country’s Prime Minister.

A meeting of the SPA on Tuesday had unanimously proposed Koirala’s name as the Prime Minister of the next government.

Meanwhile, 84-year-old Koirala is suffering from respiratory problems and is being attended by a group of doctors at his residence.
