As the schedule date of local level election, May 14, nears, Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) has revealed some of the details of the candidate for the poll. One of the candidate of RPP is actress Rekha Thapa.
The party hasn’t entrusted Rekha to be the Mayor but a Deputy Mayor of Kathmandu Municipality. The Mayor candidate is Rajaram Shrestha. Rajaram was the ex-speaker of the party. Rekha was elected the Central Committee Member by the Party Convention held a while ago.
This is the first time the actress is competing in an election as a politician. Earlier she had taken the membership of CPN (Maoist). In the second Constitution Assembly Election, the party had selected her as the candidate of Parsa district. But, she had to denounce the candidacy because she had forgotten to register herself in the voter’s list.
