KATHMANDU: The Election Commission (EC) is set to launch a special campaign to collect the names of the eligible voters for the upcoming local level election.

The team deployed by the EC at local level will prepare the list of the eligible voters prior to the announcement of the election as per the legal mandate.

EC’s Chief Commissioner Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya shared that voters name list collection campaign will kick off in all rural municipalities tentatively from mid-November this year. Thapaliya said, “The ECC will launch special campaign from mid-November to finish within a month as the legal provision mandates the election of local units to be held within coming mid-April.”

Those above 18 years and having the Nepali citizenship identity card are eligible to be registered in the voter list, the EC said. During the campaign, EC will record the names of those above 16 years and will take their photos as well.

The EC also is preparing to put in place a provision wherein any eligible voters could register their names round-the-year through the EC’s offices, District Administration Offices and Area Administration Offices. This provision will benefit those who temporarily stay away from their native places for study, employment and business and other purposes.

The EC has been mandated with collection of voter list, one of the most important phases of holding elections.
