KATHMANDU: Following the call from the High Level Political Committee, the cross party taskforce of four major political parties formed to support the Chief Justice led election government, the Election Commission (EC) has re-opened the voter registration across the country from Saturday.
Prospective voters can register their names either in their home district or any other district that is convenient to them. But, one has to cast his or her vote in one’s own electoral constituency. EC spokesperson Bir Bahadur Rai said that the EC has given a week-long additional period for registering names on the biometric voter’s list to those voters who missed earlier deadline.
The voter registration will continue until August 23 without affecting the timetable of the November 19 Constituent Assembly elections. Earlier, the EC had collected the voter’s name list until mid-July. The EC is preparing to publish the final name list of the voters on September 7.
In the first phase of voter registration that ended on July 15, a total of 12.3 million citizens registered themselves. It is estimated that some 3 million Nepalis are expatriates, while 1 million eligible voters who are in Nepal did not register themselves in the first phase.
Crowds were seen today thronging electoral offices of Kathmandu and other districts from early in the morning. Meanwhile, members of the former royal family have registered their name by visiting the Kathmandu District Election Office, Babarmahal, today.
Puja Shah, Sitashma Shah and Dilasha Shah, daughters of ex-prince Dhirendra Shah, registered their names, according to Chief of District Election Office Shambhu Chalise.
From here onward, Nepal is launching the bio-metric ID card system with photo and digital records so as to minimize election frauds and the number of fake voters
