In view of the upcoming federal and provincial assembly elections, the Election Commission (EC) is working to update the voters’ name list from Sunday.
For this, the name list of the voters would be made public from the concerned ward offices and Election Offices on Sunday itself, EC said. According to EC, voters can submit their applications from August 29 to 31 in District Election Office for correction if there were any issues including errors in name, personal details, place for the voting and others.
Likewise, application could be filed from August 29 to September 1 to replace the name of those deceased ones and those quitting Nepali citizenship. Earlier, the EC was criticized for not working in this aspect.
The EC has already decided to allow Nepali citizens to cast vote for the upcoming federal and provincial assembly polls if they turn 18 years a day before the elections (November 19) but their names should be listed in the electoral roll.
With the completion of voters’ namelist update, the final namelist of the voters for this polls would be announced on September 16.
