Oli, who was elected prime minister by the country's parliament on Sunday, named two deputy premiers in Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar and Kamal Thapa. The two have been rewarded for the support they extended to Oli during Sunday's vote against immediate past premier Sushil Koirala, of the Nepali Congress.
