The  support of RPP-Nepal, which boasts 25 members in Parliament, is considered to be crucial for Oli as Nepali Congress is mulling over fielding its own candidate in the election despite a gentlemen's agreement among top leaders of Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN-Maoist to help him to lead the new government.
