NC leader Paudel complains against rebel candidacy of Joshi

Nepali Congress (NC) leader Ram Chandra Paudel on Friday has moved the Election Commission against rebel candidacy of his own party’s Govinda Raj Joshi in his constituency pointing that Joshi has been convicted of corruption by the Special Court.

He has demanded revocation of Joshi’s candidacy as per clause 13(d) of House of Representatives Election Act 2017 as his guilty verdict has yet to be overturned by the Supreme Court that Joshi has moved against the Special Court’s verdict.

The Special Court had found Joshi guilty of corruption on July 25, 2012. He had later moved the Apex Court against the guilty verdict.
