POKHARA, Nov 7: Candidates from different political parties on Thursday have registered their candidacies at District Election Office, Pokhara for the vacant seat of House of Representatives in Kaski-2 amidst the presence of party cadres and supporters.

Kaski-2 has remained vacant following the demise of the then Minister for Tourism, Culture and Civil Aviation Rabindra Adhikari in a helicopter crash in Taplejung on February 27 this year. Late Adhikari won 2017 general elections representing the Nepal Communist Party (NCP).

The by-election is scheduled to be held on November 30.

The ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has fielded wife of late Adhikari Bidya Bhattarai while the main opposition party has nominated Khemraj Poudel for the by-poll.

Similarly, Dharma Raj Gurung from Samajwadi Party, Rajani KC of Sajha Party and Bibeksheel Nepali Dal’s Jamuna Sharma are also contesting from the same constituency.
