The voting started at 11 am and will end at 2 pm today. A candidate must secure no less than 104 votes to get elected to the post of parliamentary party leader.
The election to pick the main opposition leader in Parliament has been viewed with much enthusiasm outside the NC also as without a main opposition leader in Parliament since the last two months; the Constitution Council has been not able take any decision for lack of a quorum.
The position of PP leader of the main opposition and the largest party in Parliament had been lying vacant since the demise of the then party president and PP leader Sushil Koirala on February 9.Follow @gorkhapost
