Candidate Karki demands recounting of votes

2022 Nov 27, 19:14,

Candidate for House of Representatives member from Sunsari constituency no 4, Gyanendra Bahadur Karki, has demanded recounting of votes.

The vote counting halted since Saturday noon was supposed to resume after all-party meeting on Sunday but to no avail. The all-party meeting failed to reach consensus after which Karki submitted an application letter in the Election Commission today for recounting of votes.

Karki is sitting Minister for Communications and Information Technology in the federal government. Dispute arose after 606 more voters were found than the actual vote turnout for Jagadish Prasad Kushiyat, the CPN (UML) candidate contesting from the same constituency.

Nepali Congress had expressed concern when 1,212 votes were registered in the Election Commission while the election officer made public only 606 votes.

The Commission, admitted its mistake in tallying the votes, then proposed to remove those mistakenly added votes and resume the vote count. Nepali Congress' candidate Karki refused the proposal of the Commission and insisted on recounting the votes from the beginning.

The vote count so far has shown that Karki had collected 23,439 votes while Kushiyat 23,341 votes.
