The People's Freedom Party (Nepali: नागरिक उन्मुक्ति पार्टी, Nagrik Unmukti Party) is a political party in Nepal.[1] The party's primary base is in the Tharuhath region, especially Kailali district.[2][3]

History

Formation and Registration

The party was formed under the coordination of Member of House of Representatives, Resham Lal Chaudhary. Due to some acts of law, he could not chair the party, so his wife was chosen as chair instead. He left his former party, the People's Socialist Party, Nepal, claiming that it had become power-centric, forgetting the mandate provided by the citizens whom the leaders only used as a vote bank.[1]

Party expansion and first election

The party rapidly expanded in a few months in the Tharuhath region. The party surprisingly emerged as largest party of Kailali district winning 4 local levels including two municipalities and two rural municipalities.[4] The party swept away Loktantrik Samajwadi Party, Nepal and People's Socialist Party, Nepal from Tharuhath region keeping their traditional vote block.[5]
