The position of Prime Minister of Nepal was created in 1799. Few of Nepal's Prime Ministers have carried a democratic mandate. The first elected Prime Minister was Bishweshwar Prasad Koirala, in 1959. After he was deposed and imprisoned, Nepal did not have a democratic government until 1990, when the country became a constitutional monarchy. The monarchy was abolished on 28 May 2008 by the Constituent Assembly.

The current Prime Minister is Sushil Koirala, since 11 February 2014.
