Kathmandu, June 22
The Independent Candidate Campaign has lodged a complaint with the Election Commission asking it not to register Rabi Lamichhane-led Nepal Independent Party.
Election Commission spokesperson Shaligram Sharma Poudel informed that a group had come with a letter for the election commission.
Campaign coordinator Dambar Shahu has filed a complaint demanding that the word “independent” not be used in the name of the party.
Demanding the dismissal of the party, the petition stated that no independent candidate wanted to be associated with a political party and that Lamichhane’s Nepal Independent Party was trying to take away the right given by the constitution to contest an election independently.
