Nepal’s main opposition political party is blocking Parliament to demand the prime minister resign.

Laxman Ghimire of the Nepali Congress party said the party acted because Prime Minister Jhalnath Khanal was failing to honor an agreement reached earlier this year. The protest left Parliament unable to consider bills or conduct other business Monday.

Ghimire said Khanal had agreed in May to resign but instead plans were being made to expand and reshuffle the Cabinet.

Khanal has insisted he would resign only after a national government is formed with representation from all the major political parties in parliament.
