People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

Al­to­gether 95 po­lit­i­cal par­ties have ap­plied for the registration with the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion (EC) with a view of con­test­ing the pro­vin­cial and fed­eral elec­tions. The Elec­tion Com­mis­sion had set Au­gust 27 as the dead­line for the registration of the po­lit­i­cal par­ties. As many as 31 po­lit­i­cal par­ties sub­mit­ted the ap­pli­ca­tions at the elec­tion body for registration on the last day. Ac­cord­ing to the con­sti­tu­tional pro­vi­sion, all the po­lit­i­cal par­ties, no mat­ter whether they are rep­re­sent­ing the par­lia­ment or not, must reg­is­ter them­selves with the elec­tion body be­fore any elec­tion if they want to take part in it. Only 95 par­ties will be al­lowed to take part in the up­com­ing fed­eral and pro­vin­cial elec­tions as per the con­sti­tu­tional pro­vi­sion. The Bi­juli Prasad Tim­sina-led Green Party Nepal was the first party to ap­ply for registration and Ku­mar Khadka-headed Ak­hand Party Nepal was the last to sub­mit ap­pli­ca­tion seek­ing registration with the EC. The EC said it would pub­lish the fi­nal list of the po­lit­i­cal par­ties which can par­tic­i­pate in the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial elec­tions by September 10.
