The split CPN OML group led by Madhav Kumar Nepal changed the name of the party recently registered with the Electoral Commission on Friday.
According to a leader close to a senior Nepalese leader, at today’s session, the election commission decided to change the party name in response to a proposal to change the party name to something other than CPN UML.
The faction previously applied for registration of a political party called CPN UML (Socialist), similar to CPN UML.
Meanwhile, the leaders decided to register the party as NCP Ekikrit Samajwadi (NCP United Socialist Party).
A group of leaders, including Rajendra Pandey, arrived at the Election Commission office to change the party name. Similarly, the proposed 15-person CC has been expanded to include a total of 115 members.
Likewise, the leaders of the party have not yet decided on the symbol of the election. Earlier, party members agreed to use the ‘open book’ as a symbol of the party’s campaign. However, it could not be recognized as a symbol used by other political parties.
