The faction of the Janata Samajbadi Party-Nepal (JSP) led by its Chairperson Mahanta Thakur will be holding a meeting today.

The group led by Mahantha Thakur has again applied for the registration of new partyLoktantrik Samajbadi Party — at the Election Commission.

The EC had rejected their proposal to name their new party after Janata Samajbadi Party (Loktantrik) after the name matched the previously registered party. The group remained party-less after the authenticity of the mother party of Janata Samajbadi Party (JSP) was given to the group led by Upendra Yadav following the party split.

It has been decided from now to name their party as Loktantrik Samajwadi Party and the name would be mentioned in the party's statute, manifesto and rules, according to a statement signed by Thakur.

Thakur is the chairperson of the proposed party while Rajendra Mahato and Sharat Singh Bhandari are the senior leaders. It has been proposed for a 31-member working committee including chair Thakur and senior leaders in the party. There are 15 lawmakers including Resham Chaudhary from the group.

The group led by Thakur had applied for the registration of a new party right after the government brought the ordinance relating to political parties.
