Forbes Billionaire Chaudhary recommended from two constituencies
Nepal's single Forbes Billionaire Binod Chaudhary has been recommended from two constituencies of Nawalparasi district for the upcoming Constituent Assembly polls scheduled for November this year.
According to news reports Thursday, the regional committees of CPN-UML have recommended the name of Chaudhary from Constituency No. 1 and 3 of the district.
Chaudhari was earlier a legislative member of UML under the proportionate electoral system. This will be first time for Chaudhari if he contests the polls under the first-past-the-post (direct) electoral system.
Along with Chaudhari, the names of UML leaders Dipak Adhikari and Krishan Ghimire have also been proposed from Constituency No. 1.
Similarly, from Constituency No. 3, the names of Bhimlal Adhikari, Krishna Poudel, Tilak Mahat, Ishwori Pandey, Janaklal Shrestha, Rukmangat Gyawali, Punya Poudel, Dhananjay Sharma and Sarita Kharal have also been recommended.
It will be up to the UML's central committee to take the final decision on who will actually contest the polls from among the ones recommended by the party's regional committees. nepalnews.com
