Kathmandu, May 13

The Election Commission is preparing to begin vote counting of the local elections held on Friday in most of the places tonight itself.

The commission’s spokesperson Shaligram Sharma Paudel says efforts will be made to begin the vote counting as soon as possible following the conclusion of the voting at 5 pm and an all-party meeting following this.

In many places, voting has been disrupted and delayed. In those places, those entering the voting booth by 5 pm will get a chance to cast their votes, the commission says.

Meanwhile, the commission informs voting is not taking place in the Maharajgunj municipality in Kapilvastu and ward 17 in the Tulsipur sub-metropolitan city in Dang due to the death of candidates there.
