KATHMANDU, Jan 20: Opposition parties --- CPN-UML and Democratic Socialist Party (DSP)-- have agreed to form an alliance to contest the National Assembly (NA) jointly in Madhes Province.
As per the agreement reached between the parties on Thursday, the two parties will field Usman Ansari (CPN-UML) and Rupa Kumari Yadav (DSP) during the polls scheduled for January 26 elections.
Ram Avatar Yadav, provincial chair of UML and Jitendra Sonal, DSP’s provincial chairman signed in the agreement paper.
Ruling parties ---- Nepali Congress (NC), CPN (Maoist Center), CPN (Unified Socliast) and Janata Samajbadi Party (JSP), on the other hand, are contesting the elections jointly.
KATHMANDU: One of the two parties who have put forth the agenda of the constitution amendment is all set to organize programs of protest while another has decided to remain silent on the issue.
Nepal observes Constitution Day on Asoj 3 (Sept 19, this year) to commemorate the day when the Constituent Assembly (CA) promulgated the Constitution of Nepal on September 20 in 2015. The Madhes-based parties, however, mark it as the ‘black day’ citing the concerns of the Madhesi people have not been incorporated in the constitution.
The Democratic Socialist Party (DSP) led by Mahantha Thakur is preparing to mark the day as the ‘black day’ citing their demands can not be addressed unless the constitution is amended.
After the formation of Janata Samajbady Party (JSP) following the merger between the erstwhile Samajbadi Party [led by Upendra Yadav] and Rastriya Janata Party [led by Mahantha Thakur] last year, the leaders were divided in two lines --- whether or not to term the Constitution Day as the ‘black day.
However, the JSP suffered a formal split on August 25 and the Thakur faction formed a new party named DSP. The new party is preparing to stage various programs of protest to object to the constitution and raise voices for immediate amendment as per its demand.
The DSP has issued a circular to the subordinate committees to mark September 19 as the black day. Through an internal circular issued on Wednesday, party Chairman Thakur directed the district coordinators to hold protest rallies, mass assemblies and blackouts on the day.
The JSP, on the other hand, has decided to remain silent on the day. The party is leading the provincial government in Province 2 and is one of the coalition partners of the Sher Bahadur Deuba-led federal government. The Upendra Yadav-led party is also preparing to join the Deuba Cabinet in the next few days.
A JSP leader and Province 2 Chief Minister Lal Babu Raut has not attended any formal program to mark Constitution Day ever since he assumed office in February 2018.
KATHMANDU: The deadline issued by the Election Commission (EC) for the people’s representatives of the CPN-UML and Janata Samajbadi Party (JSP) to join the newly formed CPN (Unified SOcialist) and Democratic Socialist Party (DSP) is due to expire at 5PM on Monday.
Following the introduction by the party-split ordinance by the Sher Bahadur Deuba alliance government on August 17 and issuance of the same by President Bidya Devi Bhandari the next day, splinter factions of the UML and JSP registered two new parties --- CPN (US) by UML’s splinter faction and DSP, a splitting faction of JSP.
As per the provisions of the ordinance, any group with the support of at least 20 percent of Central Committee or Parliamentary Party members can register a new party.
The CPN (US) chaired by Madhav Kumar Nepal and DSP presided by Mahantha Thakur were registered with the poll body on August 25.
KATHMANDU, Aug 26: The Election Commission (EC) has recognized the CPN (Unified Socialist) as a new political party. A meeting of the commission awarded the verification certificates to the CPN (Unified Socialist) under the chairmanship of Madhav Kumar Nepal, on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Democratic Socialist Party (DSP) led by Mahantha Thakur was also registered at the poll body on Wednesday itself.
According to the spokesperson for the commission, Raj Kumar Shrestha, Secretary of the Commission Suresh Adhikari handed over the certificate of party registration to CPN-Unified Socialist leader Rajendra Prasad Pandey and Keshav Jha on behalf of DSP.
After revolting from the CPN- UML, 56 central members and 30 parliamentarians were present in person at the EC to verify themselves in favor of CPN (US).Based on the ordinance on political parties, central committee members and parliamentarians were called for verification from 11:30 AM to 2 PM on Wednesday.
Of the 58 names proposed, Bhaskar Kafle and Rabin Koirala, however, could not be verified. Former Prime Minister and senior party leader Jhala Nath Khanal was identified via the Nepali Embassy in New Delhi, India.
Likewise, 30 members of the federal parliament also verified themselves in favor of the new party. Though the petitions of MPs Som Prasad Pandey, Mayadevi Gyawali and Sarada Bhatta were not signed, they were also among those who reached the commission for verification.
Following the split from the CPN (UML), the support of 41 central members out of the then existing 203 was required to get the new party's recognition. This is the second time that UML has split following 2054 BS over the issue related to the Mahakali treaty.
The Commission has also given party recognition to the Democratic Socialist Party Nepal led by leader Mahanta Thakur. Thakur led a group that disassociated themselves from the Janata Samajbadi Party.
KATHMANDU, Aug 25: Lawmakers of the federal parliament and central committee members of the newly formed Democratic Socialist Party (DSP), led by Mahantha Thakur, reached the Election Commission and authenticated their support to the party.
A splinter faction of the Janata Samajbadi Party (JSP) had applied for the registration of DSP. The poll body summoned the CC members and MPs to verify their signatures.
Meanwhile, 14 members of the federal parliament and 17 CC members reached the commission on Wednesday afternoon for verification.
The JSP had 34 lawmakers in the federal parliament including the House of Representatives (HoR) and National Assembly (NA).
With this, the DSP is likely to get the party registration certificate from the election body.
Easing the process for party-split, the Sher Bahadur Deuba-led government had introduced an ordinance which allows either 20 percent members of parliamentary party or central committee each to form a new party.
Meanwhile, the lawmakers and central committee members of the Madhav Kumar Nepal-led NCP (Unified Socialist) also reached the poll body on Wednesday itself to authenticate the new party.
