Kathmandu: The Upendra Yadav faction of the Janata Samajbadi Party Nepal (JSPN) has announced seeking political and legal remedies against the decision by the Election Commission (EC).
Issuing a statement on Tuesday, the faction commented that EC disregarded, neglected and rejected democratic values, beliefs, methods and practices that a decision taken by a majority of a political party will be valid in the decision of the commission.
EC on Sunday had rejected the claims made by two separate factions of the party regarding the actions taken to the rival group. A meeting of the faction held on Monday had decided to seek political and legal remedies against the decision.
JSPN Chairman Yadav had taken action against another Chairman Mahantha Thakur and the leaders of Thakur faction for joining the incumbent government. In response, Chairman Thakur had also taken action against the leaders of the Yadav faction.
Both the factions had expelled each other from the party as well. The decisions of their claims were submitted to the EC some weeks ago.
However, a meeting of the EC held Sunday had decided that the claims and latest updates of both sides were not valid and such claims could not be validated as per the Political Party Act 2073 BS.
