Nepal's PM quits just before no confidence vote after allies depart

Nepal's Prime Minister K.P. Oli resigned on Sunday, nine months after coming to power, minutes before parliament was to vote on a no confidence motion he was likely to lose.

Oli, 64, was forced to quit after allies of his multi-party coalition deserted the government accusing him of not honouring power sharing deals that helped install him as prime minister in October.

"I have already submitted my resignation to the President when I met her before coming to the house," said Oli in a speech in parliament just ahead of the scheduled no confidence vote.
