Nepal President Bidya Devi Bhandari re-elected to 2nd term of office

Nepal president Bidhya Bhandari

While Bhandari's elevation was smooth, local media reports indicated a tense meeting among the UML's top leaders during endorsement of the party's candidate for president.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari certifies various bills endorsed by the Legislature-Parliament, at her office in Sheetal Niwas, in Kathmandu, on Monday, October 16, 2017.

Two years later, as Bhandari gets re-elected for a fresh five-year term, not everyone is happy. The NC alleged that she did not rise over her previous party's interests, and some UML leaders have accused her of running her own coterie of supporters from Sitwal Niwas.

The 56-year-old took up politics in her teens, joining the fight to overturn the monarchy's centuries-long rule and later marrying a fellow communist, Madan Bhandari.

It was Oli who made Bhandari Defence Minister in the Madhav Nepal government in 2009, and President in 2015.

Bhandari took almost two-thirds of the vote to retain her position as ceremonial head of state, the election commission confirmed.

Technically, a total of 334 members of the federal parliament, comprising 275 members of the House of Representatives, 59 of the National Assembly, and 550 members of Provincial Assemblies can vote in Tuesday's election.

The Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal (RJP-N) and the Federal Socialist Forum Nepal (FSFN) who went on a marathon protest demanding the amendment in the country's constitution recently, voted for President Bhandari in the elections.

Early predictions indicate President Bhandari's win with an overwhelming majority.

There is a clear indication that Bhandari has been unable to dissociate herself from her previous party. There will also be a separate election to choose vice- president new vice president a week after the presidential election.
