Rastriya Janata Party Nepal has decided to register the party at the Election Commission (EC) today.
Keshav Jha, a general secretary of the unified party, said that they are going to the EC to officially register the unified party because they had not registered the unified party at the EC after the merger of six parties to form RJPN.
The party registration is a part of regular process and the party still demands amendment of the constitution prior to the local level elections in Province 2 slated for September 18, 2017, he added.
Manish Suman, another general secretary of the party, also said that the party is going to the EC to officially inform the constitutional body about the merger of the six parties.
Suman said that party’s registration at the EC is a regular process, but they will participate in the elections only if their demands are addressed through constitution amendment.
The RJPN boycotted the first and the second phase of local elections demanding constitution amendment first, but its cadres in various districts stood in the election as independent candidates.
