Deuba, a wily political veteran, stood unopposed in the parliamentary election having struck a deal with his predecessor that some criticised as being undemocratic.
On May 24, the then Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal "Prachanda" had announced his resignation, in keeping with his agreement with the Nepali Congress, which had propped up his coalition government since last August.
Nepal Parliament is conducting election to the post of Prime Minister in the afternoon.
Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba assumes office, on Wednesday, June 7, 2017.
Deuba, who was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University in 2016, is said to enjoy the confidence of prominent Indian leaders, and that could potentially aid him in arresting the growing disenchantment among the Madhesi community.

A second phase of local election to choose municipal and village council officials is scheduled for June 28. The second round of voting has been delayed twice, but did not impede Deuba's appointment.
Three major political parties have agreed to resume parliament from today.
Seventy-year-old Deuba takes the helm for the fourth time as Nepal enters the final stages of a drawn-out peace process that birthed a new constitution and promises for broad elections.
"I am committed to hold the second phase of local elections.as well as state and parliamentary polls in a free and impartial manner on schedule", Deuba, dressed in skin-tight pants, a knee-long Nepali robe and black cap, said in an address to parliament before being elected. Rashtriya Janta Party Nepal can also give conditional support.
