- Post Report, Kathmandu

Apr 7, 2017-

Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Ayodhee Prasad Yadav on Thursday called on the government to take a concrete decision on concerns expressed by the Madhes-based parties regarding the May 14 elections.  Addressing the two-day training of trainers on election management and conduction organised by the the Election Commission in Godavari, Lalitpur, CEC Yadav said the poll body would face difficulty [in conducting elections] if “the government does not take a concrete decision” on the matter at the earliest. 

“We have to start printing ballot papers and voter ID cards in the Tarai-Madhes region which has high number of voters,” said Yadav. 

Almost half of the voters are listed in 20 districts of the Tarai. (PR)
