Nepal's PM Koirala to run for a second term in office

Nepal's Prime Minister Sushil Koirala on Saturday filed his nomination for re-election, a day before the parliament of the troubled Himalayan nation elects a new premier. The leader of the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist), KP Sharma Oli, has already thrown his hat in the ring for the prime minister's post. "So far, Koirala and Oli have filed their candidacy for the post of the prime minister," Sudarshan Kuinkel, deputy spokesman for the parliament secretariat, told AFP.

Kuinkel said Koirala's candidature was unanimously backed by members of his Nepali Congress members, while Oli's name was proposed by Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and supported by several other parties. As a formality, Koirala resigned from his post Saturday, which allowed him to register his name for the parliamentary election on Sunday.
