With the reelection of Prime Minister Sher Bahadur as the president of Nepali Congress, the era of Koirala clan dominance, and legacy of BP Koirala, has come to an end for the first time in the history since the establishment of the party. To push Koiralas out of the central stage, all opponents stood together backing Deuba. The decline of Nepali Congress and its ideological path propounded by founder BP Koirala had started during the tenure of his own brother former prime minister Girija Prasad Koirala, who gave up party’s ideology for power. Newly reelected president Deuba, who was groomed under BP Koirala, is now leading the party with anti-Koirala support, although BP’s son Dr. Shashanka Koirala has won the election by securing the highest number of votes as a central committee member.
