Prachanda will be donning Nepali national dress during the oath ceremony

Prachanda is set to be presented in Nepali national dress during the oath ceremony. This will be first time that he will be presenting himself in official ceremony after he came to the democratic process and has been in parliament and government several times since 2006.

It is believed that his dress code was part of the discussion and decision during a meeting with allies while extending him their support to form the government.

President Bidhya Devi Bhandri has appointed Pushpa Kamal Dahal as the New Prime Minister Sunday and he will be taking oath of office and secrecy at 4 pm Tuesday.

President’s office said Bhandari appointed Prachanda as the Prime Minister shortly after he, together with K P Sharma Oli, presented her with a list of 169 members from six different political parties and independents, supporting Dahal in the formation of the new government.

Prior to the new development, Prachanda had walked away from the Nepali congress led alliance and formed a new one backed by Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist, Rastriya Swatantra Party, Rastriya Prajatantra Party, Janata Samajbadi Party, Janamat Party and Nagarik Unmukti party.
