The FSP has secured five seats under the PR category of CA. FSP general secretary Rajendra Shrestha said the PR candidates have been chosen considering the representation of diverse geographical areas, nationalities, Dalit and women as per the party’s Standing Committee decision.
Among the selected under PR category are two women and three men. According to the final PR list, the CA members nominated are FSP Chairperson Ashok Kumar Rai from indigenous nationalities, deputy general secretary Radha Timilsina from Khas-Arya, central secretary Dil Bahadur Nepali from Dalit, central member Tasing Ali Siddiki from Muslim and Urmila Devi Sah from Madhesi.
They could not submit the list of PR candidates within the deadline set by the EC due to busy schedule in course of national gathering of the party, he said.
The EC sources said that some 29 parties have so far submitted the final PR list to EC. The Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum Nepal has yet to submit its list.
The final list of PR candidates would be submitted to the President soon once all the political parties present their lists to EC, said EC Spokesperson Bir Bahadur Rai. RSS
