Kathmandu, November 20
The Election Commission says the voter turnout in the federal and provincial elections held across the country was restricted to 61 per cent, nine per cent less than its expectation.
Earlier, our correspondents across the country had also reported lower voter turnouts.
Likewise, the commission says voting has been obstructed and hence rescheduled for further dates at 15 voting stations in four districts: one each in Surkhet, Nawalpur and Gulmi and 12 in Bajura.
In a press conference organised in Kathmandu this evening, Chief Election Commissioner Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya said one person died in the course of a clash during voting in Bajura today.
In the rest of the places, the voting was largely peaceful, according to him.
