EC’s decision not acceptable: UML Chairman Oli; UML affiliated organizations protest against EC’s decision

KP Oli_East West Campaign_UMLBhaktapur / Jun 3: CPN (UML) Chairman and former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Saturday said the decision of the Election Commission calling a re-poll in Bharatpur Metropolitan City-19 was not acceptable to his party, claiming that the decision was taken under the pressure from the government.

He also urged for the resumption of the vote count for the Metropolis that has been halted following the reports of the findings of torn ballot papers with votes during the vote count.

The UML chief also said his party was ready to fight any type of injustice done to the UML allegedly by the ruling parties.

Oli was speaking at a reception organised by UML Bhaktapur district committee to congratulate people’s representatives elected from the election from UML’s quotas.

In a different context, he expressed ignorance about the nomination filed for the election of new Prime Minister, claiming that the nomination process was pushed from outside without informing Parliament. RSS

UML affiliated organizations protest against EC’s decision
Meanwhile, CPN-UML aligned student and youth unions on Saturday staged demonstrations at Maitighar Mandala in the Capital to protest the decision of the Election Commission to re-organize voting in Bharatpur Metropolitan City-19.

The Commission took a decision to this effect as per the constitution following the reports of the finding of torn ballot papers with votes during the vote count for the Metropolis. Following the finding, the vote count was halted subsequently.

The protesters—Youth Association Nepal and All Nepal National Free Students Union—said the decision was a ‘blunder’.

Addressing the protest rally, Vice Chairman of the Association Ramesh Poudel voiced concern about the decision, saying it would set a bad precedent in the future elections. He also demanded the resumption of the halted vote count at the earliest.

Similarly, ANNFSU Chairperson Nabina Lama demanded action against those behind the tearing of the ballot papers with votes. RSS
