KATHMANDU, Aug. 21: The Supreme Court (SC) has issued an interim order in the name of Election Commission (EC) to register the Rastriya Prajatantra Party (Democratic) without implementing its earlier decision to re-verify the signature of the leaders.
A single bench of Justice Tej Bahadur KC issued the verdict on Monday not to implement the EC's decision regarding the registration of the RPP-Democratic.
Chairman of proposed RPP-Democratic Pashupati JBR had filed a writ petition in the SC on Friday against the EC after the latter decided to re-verify the signatures though all processes were completed for the registration of a political party.
The EC has directed the EC to take required decision in regard to registration of the political party and election symbol by following other legal processes for the registration of the proposed RPP-Democratic. RSS
