KATHMANDU, Feb 18: Newly appointed Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli will shift to the Prime Minister’s Residence at Baluwatar today at 4:00 PM, Chetan Adhikari, press coordinator said.

Following the resignation of Sher Bahadur Deuba on February 15, Oli was appointed as the country’s 38th prime minister after President Bidhya Devi Bhandari administered the oath of office and secrecy. Oli has formed a three-member cabinet comprising Lalbabu Pandit as minister for Environment and Population and Tham Maya Thapa as minister for Women, Children and Social Welfare. 

Oli, who was unanimously elected the parliamentary party leader by his party on Wednesday, was administered the oath of office by President Bidya Devi Bhandari shortly after his party, backed by another left party, the CPN Maoist Center, staked claim to the helm of the government citing the support of majority lawmakers in parliament.
