KATHMANDU, Dec 26: CPN-UML leader Lal Babu Pandit has claimed that Chair KP Sharma Oli will be both prime minister and Chair person of the party.

Speaking at an interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal on Tuesday, Pandit also dismissed the idea that Oli and Maoist Center Chair Dahal would rotate the prime ministership, two-and-a half-years each in line.

He added, “KP Oli will head the government for five straight years.”

“It is likely that the Chairperson of the new united party will also be Oli.”
