Call to make arrangements for voters' registration from ward level


Kathmandu, July 15: A group of Nepali Congress lawmakers Saturday called on Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, requesting the government to extend the deadline for the name registration in the voting list by 15 days.
The team headed by former Minister and lawmaker Bal Krishna Khand reached the Prime Minister's official residence, Baluwatar, to put forth their demands which also include the provision for the registration of names in the voters' list at the ward-level itself.
Talking to RSS after the meeting, lawmaker Ramhari Khatiwada said the Election Commission had issued a notice calling for the registration of name in the voters' list from the respective district headquarters by July 30. During the meeting, it was urged to extend the deadline until August 16.
The group also demanded the government to make arrangements so that those eligible voters missed to register their names due to various reasons get their names registered, to validate those voters who were in the list of the 2070 BS voting lists, make correction in the details of those voters whose address was changed due to the restructuring of local levels and collect the names of those Nepalis abroad through an e-system.
In response, the Prime Minister pledged to make initiations to address the demands in coordination with the Election Commission. (RSS)
