Nepal President to take oath on Wednesday

President Bidya Bhandari got re-elected on Tuesday as the Head of the State, but the euphoria with which Nepalis celebrated her emergence as the country's first female President two years ago is somewhat muted. President Bhandari garnered over 74 percent of the votes to be re-elected. Though the Nepali Congress led in the presidential elections with 11,428 votes from its 76 members in parliament 113 in provincial assemblies, the support of other smaller parties led to the victory of Bhandari. The Communist Party of Nepal- Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) has a total of 148 lawmakers in National Assembly and House of Representative or the Federal Assembly whereas a total of 243 are in Provincial Councils. Provincial Assembly member Rajib Gurung aka Deepak Manage, who is on the run after he was convicted in an attempted murder case, was also disqualified for voting.

The electors from Sajha Bibeksheel, Naya Shakti and Nepal Majdoor Kisan Party did not cast their votes.

Bidya Devi Bhandari first term as the president of Nepal was uncontroversial and she was likely to win the elections again.

President Bhandari is expected to take the oath of office on Wednesday at 4 pm. Even this time, Oli strongly stood by her, arguing that she is "too young to retire" and must be elected for another term.
