Nepal’s Current Prime Minister has been featured on English Wikipedia Homepage.

Sher Bahadur Deuba was nominated Nepal’s Prime Minister by Nepal’s Supreme Court on July 13.

After Months of Political Turbulence created by Former Prime minister KP Sharma Oli in Nepal, Nepal’s Supreme Court ousted KP Sharma Oli and appointed Sher Bahadur Deuba.

Sher Bahadur Deuba began his political career as a student and alongside others founded the Nepal Student Union, a student wing of the Nepali Congress.

From 1971 to 1980, he served as president of the student wing. During the 1960s and 1970s, Deuba was jailed intermittently for nine years for working against the Panchayat system.

He has previously served four terms as the prime minister and is the Member of Parliament for Dadeldhura–1. He has been the president of the Nepali Congress since 2016.

This is his fifth time being Prime Minister of Nepal.

Oli instructed the president in May to dissolve the House of Representatives, Parliament’s lower house, and call new elections for later this year.

A coalition of opposition parties challenged the decision in the Supreme Court, claiming that they had the support of a majority in Parliament to form a new government.
