Kathmandu, May 3

The Election Commission says 335 local officials have been elected unopposed in the 2022 local elections.

Whereas voting is scheduled to be held on May 13, the commission says 335 people are being elected unanimously as only one person filed a nomination for each of these positions.

The commission, however, has not revealed who got elected unopposed in which place. It is likely that a detailed announcement will be made once the voting for the local elections will be over.

Meanwhile, the commission says 170 wards of the country did not receive any nomination for one Dalit woman ward member reserved in the ward committee. These vacant wards also include at least 26 wards in the Kathmandu valley.
