Government change is a normal practice in a parliamentary system. Recently Britain and France have witnessed the change in government after elections for parliament and president. However, core principles of foreign policies still remain intact. As is evidenced by historical facts, Nepal does not have a consistent foreign policy. With the change in government, foreign policy also gets affected.

Such skepticism is generated because of past records, which show change in core policy of Nepal after the change of government. Whether the replacement of Prachanda-led government by Deuwa-led one will uphold the previous agreements reached with China, is a question frequently raised in Nepali intelligentsia.
