Nepali lawmakers failed to elect a new prime minister for the 14th time on Friday with Nepali Congress leader Ram Chandra Poudel, the lone candidate in fray, securing only 96 votes in his favour. A candidate needs support of 300 lawmakers for a win.

The next round of voting will take place on November 1.
