Kathmandu: President Bidya Devi Bhandari has decided to dismiss the claims made by the incumbent PM KP Oli and Sher Bahadur Deuba, citing the lack of basis for the claims. 

Issuing a statement at midnight on Friday, the President said there is no basis to the claims of either Deuba or Oli to win the vote of confidence as per Article 76 (5).

The opposition alliance supporting Deuba had claimed 149 collected signatures on Friday. Similarly, KP Oli had claimed to have 153 lawmakers in his support and staked a claim for the majority government.
