Kathmandu, July 1

The Election Commission has approved the formation of a new political party named the National Independent Party led by popular former journalist Rabi Lamichhane.

Although a complaint was registered against the proposed name of the party, the commission approved it. The constitutional body awarded the registration certificate to Lamichhane on Friday.

Lamichhane says the Nepal Independent Party has received a bell within a circle as the election symbol.

“The political party has been registered. Now, it has to go to the people,” Lamichhane says, “So far, we have got a chance to tell the public about a few things about our party. Now, we will continue sharing our views with them.”
