Election Commission Asks NCP Factions To Prove Authenticity In Seven Days

In case of a party split, Election Commission will first see which faction has the majority of members at the time of split to determine the main party. The second splinter group, which fails to prove its authenticity, will be given a chance to register at the Commission as a new political party.

By N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Election Commission (EC) has asked the two splinter groups of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP), respectively led by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Nepal-Dahal group, to claim their authenticity in seven days.

“We have written two official letters to both the groups to prove that they are the main NCP in seven days,” said Chief Election Commissioner Dinesh Thapaliya on Friday, January 1, 2021.

As per Schedule 18 of a regulation about political parties, a political party has to submit changes made in that particular party to the Election Commission.

In case of a party split, Election Commission will first see which faction has the majority of members at the time of split to determine the main party.

The second splinter group, which fails to prove its authenticity, will be given a chance to register at the Commission as a new political party.

Both the factions of NCP led by PM Oli and Nepal-Dahal faction have claimed that they are the authentic and main party.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court Bar Association has decided on the names of two senior advocates, who would be helping the apex court as the “amicus curiae” members to reach to a conclusion on the House of Representatives dissolution case.

They would be senior advocates Purnaman Shakya and Khagendra Prasad Adhikari.

Nepal Bar Association has already decided to send senior advocates Badri Bahadur Karki, Satish Krishna Kharel and Bijay Kant Mainali as the three amicus curiae members to the Supreme Court on the same case.

Hearings on more than 10 writ petitions are going on in the Supreme Court for and against the decision of PM Oli on Sunday, December 20, 2020 to dissolve the Lower House and thereby declare election for April-May 2021.
