The commission stated that voting has been going on peacefully and enthusiastically since 7 am except for some occasional incidents.

Spokesperson of the Commission Shaligram Sharma Poudel informed that polling was disrupted due to general disputes at some polling stations in Dolakha, Sarlahi, Saptari, Ramechhap, Parbat, Humla and Bajura. He said that efforts were being made and voting was expected to resume soon in those places.
