Around 10,000 people from 44 organisations registered for local election observation

Kathmandu, April 22

The Election Commission says it has approved the registration of around 10,000 people representing 44 organisations across the country to observe the local elections to be held on May 13.

The election observers will be allowed to observe and monitor election procedures from candidacy nominations to the announcement of results. However, observes will be barred from observation activities in the constituencies where they will cast votes.

The commission says each of the organisations approved will have to monitor at least 50 voting booths spread over seven provinces.

They will have to submit a report to the commission after completing the local election observation.

Earlier, the commission had given the individuals and organisations 15 days to register themselves for election observation.
