The Election Commission has submitted a report with the election results of both the first-past-the-post (FPTP) and proportional representation (PR) electoral systems to the President. The elections for the member of the House of Representatives and Province Assembly were held on November 20.

At a program organized at Sheetal Niwas today, Chief Election Commissioner Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya submitted the report to President Bidya Devi Bhandari.  

There is a provision that the EC should submit a report with the final results of the FPTP and PR system within seven days of the announcement of the election results to the President. 

On the occasion, President Bhandari said the election is important for strengthening democracy.

Expressing her happiness over the conclusion of the elections to the House of Representatives (HoR) and the Province Assembly (PA), she thanked all including the Election Commission, security bodies, stakeholders, and voters for this. 

Similarly, CEO Thapaliya said the polls were concluded in a fair and fearless environment.  

Through the elections, a total of 825 people’s representatives were elected (275 under the HoR and 550 under the PA). Women’s participation in the HoR is 33.10 percent, and 36.36 percent in the PA.
