Kathmandu, May 19
The Madhesh-centric Rastriya Janata Party Nepal has amended its statute upon the party’s failure to hold a general convention on time.
When six regional parties merged to form the party around two years ago, they wrote in the new party’s charter that the first convention would be held before mid-May 2019.
As the party did not make any preparation for the convention, the Election Commission had told the party to hold the convention on time as envisaged by the statute, warning the party would lose its legal status otherwise.
But the party could not hold the contention on time and it extended the current executive committee’s term till mid July.
Sensing another failure to hold the convention by then, the top leaders decided to amend the statute to mention that the convention would be held within three years since the unity, that is by mid May next year.
Meanwhile, the party also decided to remove the provision of a presidium to lead the central committee. Now onwards, a single chairperson will lead the party.
