Though Bhatt needed only 27 votes to get a vote of confidence, he got a majority after the CPN-UML’s Madhav Kumar Nepal voted for him.

Although the Nepali Congress said it would not allow his government to fall, Nepali Congress did not vote for or against Chief Minister Bhatta.

Out of the 51 MPs present in the state assembly, 30 voted for Bhatta and nine voted against.

Twelve Congress MPs did not cast their votes. There are 13 Maoist MPs in the state assembly.

Despite instructions from CPN-UML chairperson KP Sharma Oli’s party not to give a vote of confidence to the chief minister, 17 out of 24 UML members voted for Bhatta.

A meeting of the UML Far Western Parliamentary Party, which is dominated by the Nepali side, had decided to hold a meeting this morning and give a vote of confidence to Bhatta.
