On 1 March, the HoR granted confidence to Bashaagha’s slightly amended Cabinet list, dubbed the Government of National Stability (GNS). At the time of writing, there remains confusion about the number of HoR members in attendance and the votes in favour of the government. According to the HoR, 101 members attended and the government was passed by 92 votes, with Speaker Aqeela Saleh overseeing the session and voting count. However, some HoR members say it was only passed by 78 votes, while others say only 67 members were in attendance. UNSMIL observers were also present at the session. The swearing in session for the new government is due to take place on 3 March.
