font size    

A senior Election Commission (EC) official has informed that there will be around 17.5 million eligible voters in Nepal's forthcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) elections.

Nilkantha Upreti, an election commissioner, told reporters here on Wednesday that around 17,500 polling centers will have to be set up for the purpose of conducting CA polls.

The task of registering voters is 95 percent complete till now, Upreti said, adding that the EC will invite political parties to register for the elections purposes within the next few days.

The election commissioner said that the EC was still waiting for the enactment of three electoral legislation including the CA Members Election Bill, CA Court Bill, and the Bill on Political Parties.

Upreti said the EC was fully committed to hold the polls on stipulated time by mid-June.

The Constituent Assembly is an elected body, like parliament, of elected people's representatives to formulate the new constitution.
