As the current President Bidya Devi Bhandari’s term is about to complete, the Government of Nepal is busy in preparing for the Presidential election scheduled for March 13, 2018.
With the announcement already out, all the political parties are busy in naming their contestants for the next President role.
While Bidya Devi Bhandari and former Prime Minister Jhala Nath Khanal are the two leading candidates, Nepali Congress fielded Man Bahadur Bishwokarma as its candidate for the Presidential race.
However, owing to its majority in the Parliament, UML holds high chances to finalize the country’s next President.
Following Presidential elections, separate elections for Vice-Presidential role will also be conducted.
