NCP candidate Bidya Bhattarai wins Kaski-2 seat

Bidya Bhattarai speaks at a function organised to condole the death of her husband, Rabindra Adhikari, in Pokhara, March 2019.

Kathmandu, December 1

Nepal Communist Party’s candidate Bidya Bhattarai has won the Kaski-2 parliamentary seat, which had fallen vacant after her husband and Minister Rabindra Adhikari passed away in a helicopter crash in February this year.

Bhattarai beat her competitor Khem Raj Paudel of the Nepali Congress by a margin of over 8,000 votes. Paudel congratulated Bhattarai before the official result was announced conceding his defeat in the election.

Bhattarai received 24,395 votes while Paudel 15,986, according to the official tally.

Bhattarai was the front runner in the race for the seat, but last minute campaigning by top leaders from the Nepali Congress threatened to close the gap between the two candidates.
