An alliance of 2 major communist parties is leading parliamentary election results in Nepal and could be forming the next government in the Himalayan nation.

According to preliminary results by Nepal’s Election Commission, the alliance of Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist Leninist) and Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Center) has won 19 seats in the National Assembly and is leading in 81 other constituencies.

In the assembly, 165 seats are directly elected and 110 are allocated to parties based on proportional representation.

The Nepal Congress, which was the largest party in the last election, has so far won only three seats.

“This is a clear indication that the Left alliance will get more than majority votes needed to form a government,” said Sudheer Sharma, editor of the popular Kantipur newspaper.

Sharma said the reason for the alliance doing so well was because their votes were not divided as was the case in past elections.

"They also promised a stable government for the next 5 years", he added.
