Jalanath Khanal announces his candidacy for President

Kathmandu: Jhalanath Khanal, senior leader of CPN Ekikrit Samajwadi Party, has announced his candidacy for President of the country.

He said that he will maintain his claim to the presidency from the Ekikrit Samajwadi Party when an agreement is reached on the power coalition.

Since the party has not claimed their candidacy for Prime Minister and the Speaker, they are saying that they should get the President post.

In the past, Khanal’s candidacy was discussed as the future president in the ruling coalition.
