7 April, Kathmandu : The Nepali Congress leaders reached the office of the Election Commission on Friday, and garnered information about the preparation of the election slated for May 14.

The Nepali Congress had assigned central members Khand and Dipak Giri for the local election mobilization and coordination.

On the occasion, Minister Khand learned about the political parties participating in the election, provision for independent candidates, challenges to be surfaced during election and the weakness on the implementation of the related laws.

Discussion was also held on the process of the selection of candidates in the local level. It is learnt that they discussed thoroughly whether the central office bearers could be assigned for selecting the candidates as per the party statute.

After the visit to the Election Commission, Minister Khand said Commission’s preparation for election was very satisfactory, and the participation of all political parties in the meetings called by the district election offices was the a step ensuring the election.
However, the EC said it faced problems when the representatives of the political parties failed to attend the meeting in various districts on time.

Minister Khand further said government was providing all sorts of assistance the EC was seeking. According to him, some of the issues creating hurdles could be addressed through constitution amendment.

Responding to a query, Defense Minister Khand said, “In a bid to provide security by coordinating all sides, Nepal Army would be mobilized to work from the outer layer of security for election.” RSS
