Ram Chandra Paudel, a veteran Nepali Congress leader, has been elected as Nepal's third president. He was chosen by an electoral college made up of members from the federal parliament and seven provincial legislators. Paudel is a former speaker, and a six-time lawmaker and has held various ministerial positions, including the interior ministry.
Nepal is a parliamentary democracy with a ceremonial president as head of the state, but during times of political crisis, the president can play a key function in government formation.
- Pray for the political leaders and government officials of Nepal.
- Pray for the people of Nepal, that they may experience peace amid the political challenges.
