KATHMANDU, Dec 23: The Dahal-Nepal faction of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has elected Pushpa Kamal Dahal as their parliamentary leader.
A parliamentary party meeting of the Dahal-Nepal faction of the party held at the Parliament Building in New Baneshwar on Wednesday made a decision to this effect, ousting K P Oli as the party's parliamentary leader. The nomination of Dahal as the parliamentary leader was proposed by senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, who was earlier named as one of the two chairmen of the party.
The Dahal-Nepal faction had earlier named Madhav Kumar Nepal as Chairman of the party. Both Dahal and Nepal will now act as the chairmen of the newly-formed party.
