Commission prepares to hold state and union elections by December 25

July 10, Kathmandu. Chief Election Commissioner Thapaliya Dinesh Thapaliya has informed that the commission is preparing to hold the state and federal parliamentary elections by November 25.

At a meeting of the Women and Social Affairs Committee, she said that the commission was preparing for the election and urged the parliamentarians to play a role in registering at least 33 percent women candidates.

Although the Local Level Election Act spoke of 50 percent participation of women in the post of Chief Deputy Chief, he said that 50 percent participation of women could not take place in the local elections as there was a provision for contesting only for one post.

He claimed that some legal and practical issues regarding proportional representation would be in line with the spirit of the constitution. He said, “If there is only one candidate for any post, it is necessary to register the nomination of a woman. Help for that.”

Stating that it was a matter of morality for the election to be costly and extravagant, Thapaliya objected to the criticism of the commission that the election was costly and extravagant.

“Setting spending limits yourself, making laws yourself, but not following the rules yourself?” He said, “What’s more, the details of the expenditure submitted to the commission are not correct?” What is this The solution is nowhere near us. ‘ He also said that the commission was ready to hold low-cost elections.
