The Election Commission has directed the bodies concerned to carry out the vote counting task within maximum five days of its commencement.

It has also urged the stakeholders concerned to refrain from aggravating the dispute by turning minor issues as a major issue; such as creating problem demanding for a recount of votes at the time when the final results of the vote count is about to be announced and from seeking to have a recount of votes in case of narrow margin of votes between candidates just when the counting is over and the results are to be announced, as these sorts of activities create obstructions in counting of votes in the stipulated time.

Issuing a press release today, EC's spokesperson and joint secretary Shaligram Sharma Poudel stated that in the context of the overall responsibility of conducting, overseeing, controlling and directing the elections at various levels lying with the Election Commission as per the Constitution, with no confusion on this matter, the Commission's serious attention has been drawn towards news carried by some media with the wrong intention.

"The Election Commission urges one and all not to disseminate news likely to create confusion regarding the election system and process. The Commission sincerely requests all not to disseminate or make others disseminate news that may creat distrust towards the Commission and the election process itself by making comments giving the opposite notion to the steps taken for completing the designated responsibilities on time," the press release reads.

The Election Commission has likewise appealed to the political parties, the election candidates, their representatives and the employees at various vote counting centres to internalize in a realistic manner everybody's wish that the vote counting is concluded on the designated time as far as possible and have it done in an expeditious manner in keeping with this common aspiration.
