The Election Commission has revoked the registration of 41 political parties.

The registration has been revoked after the parties failed to present their audit report for three consecutive years. Today's meeting of the EC decided that the names, flags and symbols of the political parties, whose registration has been cancelled, will not be allowed to be used by any other party for one year from the date of cancellation, according to Raj Kumar Shrestha, spokesperson of the EC.

 After the registration of 41 parties has been revoked with effect from Wednesday, only 95 parties remain registered in the commission. Registered political parties are required to keep an account of their income and expenditure and submit an audit of their income and expenditure to the Commission within six months after the end of the financial year.

There is a legal provision that the Commission can revoke the registration of a party per the Political Parties Act, 2073 BS if it commits an offence more than once or does not comply with the given order within one year or does not pay the prescribed fine.
