Kathmandu, Aug 31: Due to technical problems, the Nepal cabinet was hampered and it is expected to be expanded on Sunday, Aug 31. During his meeting with the Communist Party of Nepal (Unity Centre) General Secretary Narayan Kaji Shrestha 'Prakash' at Baluwatar on Saturday, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias Prachanda said that a full-fledged cabinet would be in place on Sunday, Nepalnews.com reported.

Prachanda also expressed confidence that minor allies like Janamorcha Nepal and CPN (Marxist Leninist) would join the new government on Sunday itself.

The three-party alliance, comprising the CPN-Maoist, the CPN-Unified Marxist Leninist and the Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (MJF), is likely to take a decision on whether to appoint deputy prime ministers.

UML leader Bam Dev Gautam will hold the second position in the government, while Finance Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai and Foreign Minister Upendra Yadav will be the deputy prime ministers.

New ministers were to be inducted on Friday, but the process was put on hold with the Maoists not being able to name their remaining ministers.
