Lokendra Bahadur Chand
Lokendra Bahadur Chand (born 1940) was the prime minister of Nepal four times: from 1983 to 1986, briefly during April 1990, briefly during 1997, and from October 2002 until June 2003. He is a major supporter of the Nepalese monarchy. During his first two terms as Prime Minister, he did not belong to any political party, but by 1997 he was a member of his current political party, the conservative Rashtriya Prahatantra Party (RPP). He became Prime Minister on October 11, 2002, a week after the king launched a coup against the Nepali Congress Party government of Sher Bahadur Deuba. Chand was forced to resign in 2003 after massive protests and an intensification of the civil war with Maoist rebels.
