Kathmandu, February 28

The Election Commission has set an expense limit for the campaigning of candidates for the presidential and vice presidential elections.

Accordingly, a candidate can spend up to Rs 400,000, details of which should be submitted to the commission later.

The commission has scheduled the presidential election for March 9 and the vice presidential election for March 17.

Whereas two candidates are fighting for the top position, the election process for the vice presidential poll will begin after the presidential poll as the constitution requires the two office holders to be from different gender or ethnic groups.

Meanwhile, the Election Commission says it is implementing a code of conduct for the candidates from Wednesday until March 19.
