KATHMANDU: As even senior leaders of the political parties have also missed the chance of updating their name in the voter’s list for the purpose of election of the constituent assembly, the Election Commission (EC) has reopened time for voters’ list update for a week on Thursday.
After the pressure from various political parties, the commission finally reopened time for the voters’ list collection for those who are missed out in the previous list. The EC will reopen the process to update voter’s list from August 17 to 23.
According to EC sources, the voter registration will not affect the final election date of November 19 and that it will be ‘out district registration’ as before. The extensive bio-metric voter registration works had closed on July 15 registering 12.3 million voters in total. The EC aims to distribute computer record-based voter ID cards, a step which is new to Nepal.
Prospective voters can now register in election offices of all 75 districts, but they have to be at least 18 year old before July 15. The Madhesh based parties have been making re-opening of voter’s registration as their major agenda as chairperson of the Tarai Madhesh Democratic Party Mahanta Thakur is also not registered at the list.
