Kathmandu, October 23
Rabi Lamichhane’s Rastriya Swatantra Party is electing its parliamentary party leader, the leader of its elected lawmakers, even before the House of Representatives elections.
The party says it has included such a provision in the party charter so as to inform the public who will be the prime minister if the party wins the majority of the seats in the parliament.
If the elected parliamentary party leader fails to win the general elections, another parliamentary party leader will be elected following the general elections, according to the party’s press coordinator Ganesh Karki.
The party has called applications from its candidates by Monday 5 pm if they want to lead the parliamentary party.
