Nepal

With the nomination process over, Nepal appears all set to vote and elect a government at the Centre and in seven provinces by December third week, a month in advance of the deadline set by the constitution.

 

Former Constituent Assembly member and leader of the CPN-Maoist Centre Balkrishna Dhungel who was convicted by the Supreme Court in 2010 on charges of killing CPN-UML’s Ujjan Kumar Shrestha of Okhaldhunga, was arrested by police on Tuesday and sent to jail to serve the remaining sentence.

 

The way the police handled the heinous murder case in Siraha recently in which a girl had connived to kill a cousin to cover up an illicit relationship is something to mull over as the victims were teenagers.

 

Thirty-one people were killed and 16 others were injured, some of them seriously, when a passenger bus (Na 6 Kha 1467) skidded off the Prithvi Highway at Gajuri and plunged into the Trishuli River in the wee hours on Saturday.

 

Despite the ruling of the Supreme Court the Election Commission says that it is unable to print separate ballot papers for the provincial and parliamentary first-past-the-post elections.

 

The Election Commission (EC) has said that it could not make arrangements for those deployed for parliamentary and provincial elections to cast their votes in the first and second phases of elections scheduled for November 26 and December 7 due to time constraint.

 

An ordinance on medical science education has been endorsed by the Cabinet Monday and a decision was reached by it to send it to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari who would be providing it with the needful authentication.

 

Various political parties and independents filed nominations for the parliamentary and provincial First-Past-the-Post (FPtP) elections in 32 hilly and mountainous districts in the respective district election offices.

 

As the election process continues in full swing, with the filing of nomination on Sunday for polls to the provincial and federal legislatures on November 26 and December 7, political parties are promising the moon to a frustrated and angry electorate for the third time in nine years.

 

Nepal has been elected member of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for the first time since its inception in 2006.
