2022 Dec 13, 17:49, Kathmandu

Lokatantrik Samajwadi Party (LSP) Nepal is going to remain in current coalition.

Party Chairperson Mahantha Thakur underscored the need for his party to remain in the coalition for a certain time for political stability and development.

Thakur told the Rastriya Samachar Samiti (RSS) here today that the top leaders of his party had similar views on becoming a part of the ruling five-party coalition.

He said, "We want the current coalition to remain irrespective of us joining the government or not. It's not a big deal to join the government. Political instability adversely affects development works. Therefore, there should be coalition for a certain time for stability and development."

The LSP leader was of the view that whichever government it would be, its focus should be on political stability and overall economic development of the country.

Thakur shared that he was going to hold talks with Prime Minister and President of Nepali Congress Sher Bahadur Deuba today evening on contemporary issues including his party joining the government.

Since the final result of the recently held parliamentary elections would be made public today and the political parties are learnt to take forward discussion for formation of new government accordingly.

Similarly, LSP senior leader Sharat Singh Bhandari shared that the top leaders in his party had already decided to join the government. "We went to poll entering alliance. We will remain in coalition normally even after the poll. The new government will have support from LSP."

To make official decision on joining the government, an executive committee's meeting has been summoned and the meeting is likely to be convened towards the third week of December, said Bhandari.

LSP has won four seats in the House of Representatives in the parliamentary poll.
