Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has assured the public that his government will provide all people with Covid-19 vaccines before the November elections for the House of Representatives, which the government recently declared.
On Sunday, Oli told a group of journalists from his CPN-UML faction that the government was in talks with a number of vaccine-producing countries and development partners to obtain vaccines as grant funding and purchase.
Oli spent the majority of his nearly two-hour conversation defending why dissolving the House was the only option left to him, as well as criticizing opposition parties.
The polls, on the other hand, are unpredictable, with both of the major political parties requesting that the House be reinstated. Many others are concerned that the pandemic’s consequences would cause the election to be postponed.
