EC receives SC verdict


By A Staff Reporter
Kathmandu, Mar. 8: The Election Commission Nepal has registered the verdict of the Supreme Court issued about the ownership of the name Nepal Communist Party (NCP) on Sunday.
Issuing a statement, the election body said that it received the information letter regarding the verdict that the court had cancelled the earlier decision of the ECN to register a party with the name.
Following the parliamentary election in 2017, the two largest parties CPN (UML) and CPN (Maoist Centre) were unified to create a single party which was registered in the name ‘Nepal Communist Party (NCP)’. However, the name was already given to Rishi Ram Kattel’s party but the ECN created spaces between the abbreviated letters to make it different from the earlier.
