The United Nations has highly praised the works carried out by the Election Commission of Nepal and is going to send high-ranking officials to Kathmandu to acquire information to this connection.
Nepal’s Election Commission has been selected among the best five election commissions of the world and a U.N. delegation is arriving Kathmandu for acquiring information about this, said Chief Election Commissioner Nilkantha Upreti at a program here Friday.
“This is a matter of pride for Nepal,” CEC Upreti said. He added that the international community has highly praised the election to the Constituent Assembly held on 10 April 2008.
After the successful conduction of the CA election, the Election Commission has been moving forward programmes like voter education and the voter registration with photos with high priority.
The Chief Election Commissioner said that more than 9.5 million voters have registered their names along with their photographs.
Out of them 52 per cent are women. He said the number of men registering their names might have decreased as many men are abroad on foreign employment.
