In 2018, KP Sharma Oli and Pushp Kamal Dahal announced the formation of the Communist Party. In May 2018, both reached an agreement that the two leaders would run the government for two-and-a-half years. However, according to a new agreement in November 2019, Oli was to run the government for a full five years, while Prachanda was elected to the post of party president for a full 5 years. However, in view of Oli's recent attitude, Prachanda has said that his job as PM of Nepal has not been good and Oli should resign. Also, returning to his old agreement of May 2018, Prachanda has demanded that he be made PM.
