Communist parties alliance is leading the results of First Past The Post elections of parliament. The indication is that communist will form the next coalition government.
CPN-UML leader and former prime minister Madhav Kumar won the elections from constituency no 2 of Kathmandu. Former prime minister Dr. Babura Bhattarai also won the elections. CPN-UML leader K.P. Sharma Oli, Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda and prime minister Sher Bahadur Deuba are comfortably leading the elections.
According to preliminary results by Nepal’s Election Commission on Saturday evening, the alliance of Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist Leninist 28) and Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Center 12) has won 40 seats in the House of Representative and is leading 71 by Maoist Center 21 and CPN-UML 50 other constituencies.
Although these two parties secure almost two third in 165 FPTP seats of house, much will be determined by 110 proportional representative seats which will likely to largely determine the types of parliament. The magic number for forming the majority government 138, the alliance is just a short of 28 and they will make it through proportional representatives.
