After deciding to pull out of the government, the CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal sent a letter to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. The letter ended the nearly nine-month-long UML-Maoist partnership, pushing the current Oli-led government into minority on Tuesday. Here is an unofficial translation of the letter.Confusion has appeared due to lack of clear constitutional provision on the situation that has resulted with the withdrawal of support to the incumbent coalition government by a major ruling ally. The Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Centre) had pulled out its support to the government today allegedly for the ruling party CPN-UML’s reluctance to implement the nine-point and three-point agreements signed with the party. Article 100(2) of the Constitution of Nepal has the provision that the Prime Minister should table a motion to gain vote of trust in the parliament within 30 days if the party represented by the PM is split and other ruling party withdraws support resulting the coalition in minority. However, some lawmakers have asserted that the constitutional provision could not be effective at the moment until there is no election of the House of Representatives. Constitutional law expert Nilambar Acharya said as the incumbent government was formed as per the transitional provision of the constitution Article 100 would not be active at the moment. There is the provision of the formation of Council of Ministers under the transitional provision in Article 298 of the Constitution.
