June 30: Just like in the first phase of local elections, the electoral alliance of the ruling parties, Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN (Maoist Center), has demanded re-polling. This time though, they have demanded re-polling at Chauparti Rural Municipality-4 and Sanphebagar Municipality-6 of Achham district.
Claiming that the main opposition CPN-UML captured the polling center and chased away representatives of other parties in collaboration with security personnel and election officers, the NC-Maoist coalition has demanded that all votes cast at the Baija Nath Higher Secondary School polling center in ward number 4 be considered void and a reelection be held.
Nepali Congress panel has achieved victory in the second phase of local level election in ward no. 1 of Melauli Municipality of Baitadi district.
NC’s Surat Singh Negi, has been elected Ward Chairman with 630 votes against 271 votes of his closest contender Sharad Singh Negi of CPN-UML.
NC’s Dropati Chand, Dropati Dayal, Chinta Singh Bista and Shanker Singh Nayak were elected ward member with 418, 441, 446 and 418 votes respectively.
