Kathmandu, December 9
Nearly two years after they split, Bibeksheel Nepali Party and Sajha Party have announced their unification again, on Wednesday.
Organising a virtual function, Bibeksheel’s chairman Milan Pandey and Sajha’s coordinator Rabindra Mishra announced the merger.
They have claimed they will establish the party as the one that does not have any alternative.
The unified party has been named Bibeksheel Sajha Party, the one that they had during the previous union. A beam balance (taraju), used by Sajha so far, has been chosen as the election symbol.
Mishra will lead the new party as the chairman whereas Pandey will be the coordinator. Although it was earlier said that Mishra’s role will be ceremonial one, now they have agreed that both will share powers of the executive chief.
The two parties had merged as Bibeksheel Sajha Party in the run-up to the 2017 parliamentary elections. However, they had split in early January 2019.
