RJP to take part in all elec­tions

People's Review - - FRONT PAGE - By Our Re­porter

Ras­triya Janata Par­tyNepal (RJP-N) the uni­fied po­lit­i­cal force of the six Mad­hes-based par­ties, that boy­cotted the first and the sec­ond phases of the lo­cal polls has de­cided to take part in the third phase of the lo­cal polls sched­uled for September 18 and the pro­vin­cial and fed­eral elec­tions slated for Novem­ber 26. The RJP-N last Thurs­day for­mally an­nounced its de­ci­sion to take part in the lo­cal and the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial polls. It also reg­is­tered the party with the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion for the pur­pose of par­tic­i­pat­ing in the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial elec­tions. RJP-N pre­sid­ium co­or­di­na­tor Ma­han­tha Thakur said in the press con­fer­ence or­gan­ised to make pub­lic the de­ci­sion of the of­fice bear­ers meet­ing that they de­cided to take part in the elec­tions. How­ever, with the de­ci­sion of the party to take part in the polls, the lead­ers and cadres have been fight­ing to get the tick­ets for the posts of may­ors and chair­men in the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and the Gaun­pa­likas. The RJP-N that had agreed to ac­cept the re­sults of the vot­ing on the con­sti­tu­tion amend­ment bill kept its words and de­cided to take parts in the elec­tions. The RJP-N lead­ers said they de­cided to take part in the polls stat­ing that all their de­mands ex­cept for the amend­ment to the con­sti­tu­tion were ad­dressed. The RJP-N that had threat­ened to dis­rupt the lo­cal polls failed to dis­turb the elec­tions even in the prov­ince-5. In­stead, some lead­ers of the RJP-N took part in the polls. With the RJP-N's de­ci­sion to take part in the polls, un­cer­tainty about hold­ing all the polls by the dead­line of Jan­uary 21, 2018 has ended.
