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.
