Kathmandu: Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba was on Tuesday elected the new Prime Minister of Nepal, 12 years after he was removed from the post by the then King Gyanendra Shah.

Deuba, 71, received wide political support, apart from the main opposition, Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist-Leninist, during voting.

His victory was certain after none of the political parties fielded a candidate against him.
