The Election Commission then set the deadline for the people's representatives of CPN UML to decide their affiliation- whether to stay with CPN UML or join CPN (Unified Socialist) till today.
"So far, 41 people's representatives verified their affiliation to CPN (Unified Socialist). Those from geographically distant area would register their details today too," added Jalsher Rai.
