Aug 31, 2017-
Nepali Congress (NC) has finalised the names of its candidates for the third phase of local level elections slated for September 18. The polls are taking place at 136 levels in eight districts of Province 2.
The final name list of the candidates, however, would be unveiled only tomorrow as the Prime Minister and party president Sher Bahadur Deuba is out of the Valley today, said party’s chief secretary Krishna Prasad Poudel.
The party has formed election publicity committees and communications centers in all the eight districts, deciding to send central representatives to these districts and moblise all sister organisations for the purpose of elections.
People's door to door programmes have been the priority of the party for the publicity efforts instead of mass meetings due to election code of conduct.
The Election Commission has fixed 3,578 polling centers for the third phase of elections.
The EC has said that over 31,000 human resources including employees and volunteers will be mobilised to the conduct the elections.
A total of 2,664,950 people are eligible voters for the elections.
The third phase of local level polls will elect as many as 6,627 representatives for one metropolitan city, three sub-metropolises, 73 municipalities and 59 rural municipalities. RSS
