Nepal's new coalition government was sworn in late Tuesday after weeks of squabbling over power sharing, potentially paving the way to stability for the Himalayan nation.
Ministers from the Nepali Congress and the Unified Marxist-Leninist (UML) party, which swept the polls last November, took the oath before President Ram Baran Yadav during a ceremony at his residence.
"The swearing-in ceremony has been completed. The government will include ministers from both, Nepali Congress and UML," Rajendra Dahal, press adviser to the president, told AFP.
