May 5, 2017-The main opposition CPN-UML on Thursday drew the attention of the Election Commission (EC) to the second phase of polls scheduled for June 14, saying that elections “cannot be conducted after the fiscal budget is presented”. Handing over a memorandum to Chief Election Commissioner Ayodhee Prasad Yadav, UML leader Subas Nembang said that vote counting between polls “is not possible”. The main opposition also expressed its dissatisfaction at the government decision of finalising the date for second phase of elections without consulting the party.
