Kathmandu, October 22

Candidates aspiring to contest provincial and federal parliamentary elections under the first-past-the-post category in 32 districts of mountainous and highly hilly regions are filing their nominations today.

The Election Commission has set the time from 10 am to 5 pm to file the papers.

The FPTP candidates for 37 federal House of Representatives seats and 74 provincial assembly seats will register their names at respective district election offices today.

The candidates need to get their papers signed by one proposer and one seconder, who must be a voter of the same constituency.

Every candidate representing a political party, except the independent ones, must submit the letter sent by their parties for the nomination.

Whereas a Nepali national can file nominations for any constituency for House of Representatives, they cannot contest the provincial polls in other province than their own.

Meanwhile, the Commission says the leaders whose names have been included in the closed list of proportional representation elections are not eligible to file nominations for FPTP polls.

Total 3 million and 228,879 voters will cast their votes in the first phase of polls scheduled for November 26.
