KATHMANDU, Feb 14: Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba is likely to tender his resignation today.

His decision comes after the Election Commission prepared to submit the result of House of Representatives election.

“PM Deuba is all set to step down from the post. After the EC sumbits the PR results to the President, Deuba will forward his resignation today evening,” Minister for Commerce Min Bishwokarma told Reporters’ Club Nepal.

The EC is planning to hand over the results of House of Representatives election on Wednesday.

PM Deuba will address in the name of nation about the achievements during his eight-month long tenure before announcing his resignation. He succeeded Pushpa Kamal Dahal to be elected as the prime minister of Nepal for the fourth time on June 6 last year.
