Kathmandu, May 13
Nepal is holding the nationwide local elections on Friday. Voting has begun at 7 am and will continue until 5 pm.
The Election Commission says the voting will happen in all 753 local units simultaneously except at a few places where the election procedure has been halted due to different reasons including deaths of candidates.
Over 17.73 million citizens have registered with the commission as voters for the local elections this time.
The elections are expected to be held peacefully in general as no major political group is opposing the democratic practice.
