Koirala a failed leader

With the appointment of Sushil Koirala as the 37th Prime Minister of Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, the country seems to be back in track of  new constitution making process. Famously idealized for his youth image and youth leadership, this 75 years old man depicts the real situation of Nepal's politics and its currently situation of orthodox mentality.

The November 19, 2013 election  was a breaking point for Nepal's political deadlock situation but still due to lack of political understanding and political culture, the country failed to get any result in regard to its political status and other essential decision. The elected CA members lacked to formed a proper leadership and visions in regards to management and operation for the last 3 months. Now after 3 months there seems to be some solution coming upfront but with lack of political manipulation and politics games running around for power and chair, it is still hard to expect  that there will be a secured government that will facilitate the CA to promulgate a new constitution.    
The Communist Party of Nepal (United Marxist Leninist) which supported koirala to win the position of PM at CA has already expressed its dissatisfaction with Koirala reasoning it of failing to address the agreement of home minister portfolio to its party. Similarly, the political understanding seems to be lacking  political support in context of power sharing and portfolio management, which is expressed openly by leaders of the political parties at different media.

Koirala is the sixth head of government since the country became a republic in 2008, following a peace deal with Maoist rebels in 2006.

The Nepali Congress president, scored  405 of 553 votes of MPs', moving ahead securing his position as the next Prime minister of Nepal. During the November 19, 2013 election he was elected from Banke and Chitwan constituencies for the Constituent Assembly (CA).

I think sushil koirala is just an example of weak political culture of nepal that highlights the hypocrisy and orthodox mentality that rules Nepal politics.  It is hard to say if the country will get a new constitution within next five years but I can surely say it will get more ministers and sub ministers to manage different portfolios.
