Kathmandu, July 5

As the Supreme Court is expected to issue a verdict on the constitutionality of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s decision to dissolve the House of Representatives and conduct fresh elections in November within this week, the Election Commission says it has prepared a calendar for the polls.

As no one knows what the court will decide, the fate of the elections is largely uncertain now.

An official says the commission is preparing to announce the calendar on Monday itself, calling political parties to register themselves for the polls.

That will be followed by the distribution of election symbols and the registration of candidacies.

As the government has announced to hold the elections in two phases on November 12 and 19, the commission will give different dates for the party and candidacy registration.
