Prime Minister (PM) KP Sharma Oli has reached the Shital Niwas Thursday afternoon.
Sources claim that Oli is there to stake claim for formation of the new government before the coalition of opposition parties.
A lawmaker of the Thakur-Mahato faction of Janata Samajwadi Party (JSP) told Setopati that the faction had submitted signatures of its lawmakers to Oli Thursday night itself. "We have already submitted the necessary signatures yesterday. PM Oli may have gone with that. President may appoint Oli," the lawmaker stated.
