Maldives' Elections Commission Chairman had observed the election at eight voting stations in Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Kavrepalanchok. He further said that he would share about the good practices of the election management and the process found in Nepal back in the Maldives.

The voters in the developing countries seem not yet ready to adopt the electronic voting system, he said and suggested that rather than collecting the ballot boxes at every Election Officer's office for counting the votes, it would be better if the vote counting was done at every polling station itself. He urged the Election Commission, Nepal to think on this line as well.
