NEC proposes general elections in Nepal on Nov 18

Nepal's Election Commission (EC) requests that the federal and provincial elections be held in one phase on November 18.

Chief Election Commissioner Dinesh Chandra Thapaliya and election commissioners suggested the date during a meeting with Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba at Baluwatar, the prime minister's official house, according to a commission spokesperson, Shaligram Sharma Poudel.

Even though Nepal conducted federal and provincial elections on two different dates - November 26 and December 7 back in 2017, this time the EC has expressed its intention to hold these elections in a single day for two reasons.

"We have recommended that nationwide elections for both the federal and provincial governments be held on the same day. In terms of logistical arrangements, it would be pleasant for the commission and cost-effective in the first place "Indian Narrative spoke with Poudel on Wednesday night.

The election commissioners were informed by Prime Minister Deuba that the cabinet would make the proper decisions on the holding of the elections in the upcoming weeks, according to a representative for the commission.

The election body is prepared to organise elections on the date chosen by the government, he said, adding that "the Prime Minister said that these two vital elections would take place on about the same day as proposed by the commission."
