Nepal Local Election 2017 – Vote Count Underway

June 29, 2017

The counting of the votes has commenced for the second phase of the Nepal local election 2017. The voting, which ended on Wednesday, recorded a voter attendance of 70.5 per cent. The voting was conducted in three provinces – 1, 2, 5, and 7 of Nepal. More than 62,000 candidates are competing for 15,038 positions across 334 local units in 35 districts of Nepal.

There were 6,432,765 eligible voters in three provinces. Bajura district recorded the highest 80 percent voter attendance while Bhojpur saw the lowest 61 per cent voter attendance.

The local elections are the first in Nepal since 1997 and are being seen as an attempt by the government to bring back democracy to the country hit by a decade-long civil war that ended in 2006.

The parties competing in the election are Nepali Congress, the CPN-UML, the Maoist Kendra, the Rashtriya Prajatantra Party and others.

Results will be declared soon. Stay tuned!
