Dharan, July 4
Vote counting has been halted in Dharan Sub-Metropolitan City of Sunsari district after counting staff have been accused of counting votes received by a party as those of another one.
Representatives of the CPN-Maoist Centre have accused that 50 votes of their party have been counted as votes of the CPN-ML.
Election symbols of the two parties are quite similar. Whereas the Maoist Centre’s symbol is hammer and sickle in a circle the ML has a star and a sickle.
Meanwhile, two staff, Man Bahadur Karki and Dhan Kumar Rai, have been expelled from the counting venue accusing them of miscalculation.
An all-party meeting has been called to resume the halted counting.
