The leaders have been requested to visit Deuba’s residence in Budhanilkantha at 2 pm today for further talks.

President Bidhya Devi Bhandari has given the members of the House of Representatives (HoR) a deadline to form an alternative government by 9 pm on May 13. Issuing a press statement on Monday, she had called on the members of the HoR to form a government as per Article 76 (2) of the Constitution of Nepal.
