Kathmandu. Prime Minister Pushpa Kammal Dahal Prachanda is giving completeness to the government by including 8 parties including Nepali Congress. However, the leaders of the ruling coalition say that there may be further delay in the expansion of the cabinet as there is one more stage of discussion between the coalition parties. Advisor to the Prime Minister Haribol Gajurel said that there is little chance of the Cabinet being expanded on Monday itself. Nepali Congress has made a final agreement to get 7 ministries and one state.
Purna Bahadur Khadka will lead the government from the Congress. Sources claim that if there is no change, he will become the Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister.
Likewise, Congress spokesperson Dr. Prakasharan Mahat is sure to become Finance Minister. Congress has decided to take over the ministries of foreign affairs, education and health. There are preparations to introduce three new-faced leaders from the Congress to Prachanda's cabinet.
