Nepali Congress leader Prakashman Singh has been elected from Kathmandu constituency No. 1 for the fourth time in a row. 

Son of Ganeshman Singh, a freedom fighter and the supreme commander of the 1990 popular movement, Prakashman Singh has been able to carry on with his father's political legacy. Singh was previously elected from the same constituency in the elections of 2007, 2013 and 2017.

Singh entered politics as a general member of the Congress and has held the responsibilities of Kathmandu district president, central member, general secretary and vice president of the party. He was also the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Federal Affairs and Local Development in the then Sushil Koirala-led government.

Singh was elected to the parliament this year with 7,140 votes. He got better of Mishra for the second time in a row, but with a lesser margin of 129 votes this time. Mishra got 10,111 votes.

In the previous election in 2017, Singh had defeated Mishra by 818 votes.
