Janakpurdham: The Province 2 assembly has endorsed the province name as Madhes with its capital Janakpurdham with a majority of votes.

Province assembly members Shailendra Shah, Shailendra Yadhav, and Bharat Prasad Shah proposed Madhes as the province name in today’s province assembly meeting.

Among the lawmakers, present in the meeting, 80 of them voted in favour of the proposed province name Madhesh while 19 votes were cast against the proposal.

Likewise, two-third of the province assembly members endorsed the proposal to determine its Capital Janakpurdham.

78 lawmakers voted in favor of the province capital while 21 votes were cast against the proposal.

This was the second attempt to the name province and determine its capital. Prior to this, the name and the capital could not be decided even when voting was held on March 15, 2008. Both proposals failed to garner the required two-thirds majority.
