The Election Commission has decided to resolve the debate between two factions of Janata Samajbadi Party-Nepal, each claiming to be the official party, through a bench. The EC will set up a bench within a week and reach a decision in consultation with lawyers.
The decision was reached after the EC held a joint discussion with the two factions — one led by Party Chair Mahantha Thakur and another led by another Chair Upendra Yadav today. Earlier, the EC had denied recognizing any of the factions as the official ones.
In the meeting held at the EC today, the two factions have agreed to divide the party. Accordingly, both sides stressed the EC resolve the issue soon.
