Election has institutionalised democracy: CEC Thapaliya

KATHMANDU: Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya has said the election to the House of Representatives and Province Assembly have contributed to institutionalise the federal republic along with selection of people’s representatives.

Inaugurating the Bagmati Province level election review programme at Dolakha today, he said the review programme will provide guidance as to making the elections more systematic in the coming days.

The Chief Election Commissioner stressed that election is won on the basis of principles, integrity and ideology.

“Suggestions were collected through consultations at the rural municipality level for making the voter list unblemished. We believe that the voter roll was flawless,” he said, adding that if there are any errors in the voter list, you yourself are responsible for that.

“I do not believe in the conjectures that the names of dead people were included in the voter list and votes were cast in their names in Dolakha. If that is the case, please explain how it happened and express the reality here”, CEC Thapaliya said on the occasion.

Election Commission Under Secretary Kamal Gyawali had made a presentation on the election-related data, good practices, problems and challenges during the November 20 election.

The Chief Election Officer, the Chief District Officer, chiefs of the district-based security bodies and the stakeholders were present in the review programme.

Group discussions will be held on voter lists, the voting process, human resources, election materials management, monitoring, election laws, monitoring of social sites, voter education, election observation, information technology use, gender inclusion, among other topics. RSS
