Kathmandu, November 21
The Election Commission says it has printed 52 types of ballot papers for the by-elections to be held in different constituencies of the country on November 30.
The voting will be held to elect 52 lawmakers and officials at federal, provincial and local levels. The commission says different types of ballots were needed for each of the positions as different constituencies have different numbers of candidates.
Dharan sub-metropolitan city, which is electing its mayor in the election, will have the biggest ballot paper as it has the highest number of candidates: 23. The commission says the lowest number of candidates vying for one position is two.
Meanwhile, the government has assigned Nepal Army to supply the ballot papers to the voting stations safely, according to the commission. An election commissioner Narendra Dahal says the army personnel will supply the ballot papers to the stations by this Saturday.
