KATHMANDU :

Following consultation with major political parties, the Sher Bahadur Deuba led government is set to decide provincial chiefs and temporary capitals in a cabinet meeting today. Prior to the meeting, Prime Minister Deuba will consult with CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center).

Through political consensus, the government is likely to nominate provincial chiefs; two each from Nepali Congress and CPN-UML while Maoist Center, RJP and FSFN will have one each. PM Deuba has already sought names from the five parties for the same.  

A provincial chief must not be affiliated with any political party or have disputed character. They instead must have expertise in some subjects.  At present, temporary provincial capitals will be where high court is.
