Opting to not face a no-trust motion against him in Parliament, Nepal Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli on Sunday submitted his resignation pushing the country into political uncertainty.

He tendered his resignation to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari at the President's Office here, officials said.

Nepal's Parliament on Friday began discussing the no-trust motion after three bills related to the annual budget were rejected by a majority vote.

The development was a big blow to the Oli government, which was reduced to a minority after key alliance partner, Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist-Centre) withdrew support earlier this month.
