Chief Election Commissioner Nil Kanth revealed that over 70 percent votes have been cast during the Constituent Assembly election held on Tuesday.

Addressing the press conference, Chief Election Commissioner Nil Kantha Uprety told that the voters took part enthusiastically in the election despite some unpleasant incidents.

“The election was held in a free, fair and peaceful manner except a few untoward incidents stating that the credit goes to parties, civil servants, social activists, international community, international/national poll observers, and the media to make it a grand success,” said Uprety to the media person on Tuesday evening.  

“This second CA election was historic with the highest turnout of voters in history of Nepal,” Uprety added. “There are still a few challenges until the country witnesses the final outcome,” he said.

Replying to query on Thabang-based polling station, Uprety said that the election process at Thabang-based polling station would be conducted.

As reported earlier, a group of CPN-Maoist leaders led by General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa restrained the voters not to take part in the voting warning of bloodshed ahead if the poll held.
