Kathmandu, April 18
The Election Commission says it has completed printing almost half of the ballot papers required for the May 13 local elections.
Whereas the commission is printing 19.4 million ballot papers in total, so far, it has printed 9.525 million, which is 49.1 per cent of the requirement, according to the commission spokesperson Shaligram Sharma Paudel.
The commission has been printing the ballot papers required for remote districts first. These districts have fewer numbers of populations than other districts.
Paudel says the commission has printed papers required for 46 of the total of 77 districts.
