KATHMANDU, March 31: Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP) has recommended economist Dr Swarnim Wagle as the party’s candidate for the by-election to be held in Tanahun-1.
Earlier, Dr Wagle had decided to quit Nepali Congress (NC) alleging that he was repeatedly humiliated by the party's top leadership.
According to the RSP, only one name of the party Chairman Rabi Lamichhane has been recommended for the by-election to be held in Chitwan-2. Likewise, two names have been recommended from Bara 2 in the first phase for the by-elections to be held on April 23. Ramesh Kharel from Bara-2 and Yuvraj Neupane have been recommended in the first round.
The by-elections are being held in Tanahun-1 and Bara-2 after Ram Chandra Poudel and Ram Sahaya Prasad Yadav, who were earlier elected as members of the House of Representatives, were elected as President and Vice-President, respectively.
