China is sending a four-member team to Kathmandu

China is sending a four-member team led by a vice minister of the Chinese Communist Party to Kathmandu to prevent a split in the ruling the Nepal Communist Party.

Nepal went into a political crisis after President Bidya Devi Bhandari dissolved the House of Representatives and announced dates for mid-term elections at the recommendation of Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli, which resulted in the protests from a section of the ruling party.The ruling NCP is going through a crisis between the factions led by Prime Minister Oli and executive chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’.Guo Yezhou, vice-minister of the International Department of the Communist Party of China is one of the prominent person to board to Kathmandu as a team member.

This is not the first time that China has intervened in Nepal’s internal affairs at a time of crisis.In May, Hou held separate meetings with President Bhandari, the prime minister and other senior NCP leaders, including Prachanda, when Oli was facing mounting pressure to step down.

In July, she again met a number of top leaders, including the President, Prime Minister, Prachanda, Madhav Kumar Nepal and Jhala Nath Khanal and Bamdev Gautam to save Oli, who is known for his pro-Beijing leanings.
