The historic proclamation has made it to the public after some delay, however, the cabinet is yet to get its full shape. Some of the alliance members are still contemplating on the names of the potential ministers while we are yet to see some further disagreements on the division of portfolio. The expansion of the cabinet has been overshadowed by the house proclamation and the peace talks which was given a boost with the arrival of Mahara in Kathmandu. Yet, Deshantar weekly has made public the names of the potential ministers as proposed by the political parties.
As per the agreement so far, there will be 7 ministers from NC, 6 from UML,4 from NC(D), 1 from Sadvawana,1 from Janmorcha and 2 from the civil society. Here is the list of potential ministers:
Nepali Congress:3 from Baldev Sharma, Dilendra Badu, Mina Pandey, Kamala Pant, Kashi Poudel and Binayadhoj Chand.
UML:Pradip Gyawali, Rajendra Pandey, Mangal Siddhi Manandhar, Urmila Aryal, and Dhrama Shah
NC(D):Gyanendra Bahadur Shah, Ramesh Lekhak and two more.
Sadvawana: 1 from Rajendra Mahato and Hridayadesh Tripati
Janmorcha: 1 from Pari Thapa and Lilamani Pokhrel
Civil Society: Laxman Aryal and Padhmaratna Tuladhar
Let us hope that the cabinet gets its full shape soon and the country heads back to its normal life. We are tired of all these changes and we need some stability in the nation not only for the peace of mind but also for business growth and prosperity.
