KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba is likely to take a vote of confidence at the House of Representatives Sunday.

Deuba, who was appointed as the prime minister last week as per the order of the Supreme Court, is taking a vote of confidence today, according to CPN-UML leader Gokul Baskota.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday, former Communications Minister Baskota said that PM Deuba will take the vote of confidence.
