KATHMANDU, May 15: The Election Commission (EC) has urged the bodies concerned not to blow a minor human error during the counting of votes out of proportion as an issue of dispute.

The EC has said its attention has been drawn to the incidents of halting the counting, mobbing, shouting and causing a delay in the entire counting process over unnecessary disputes. The latest untoward scenario during the counting process has its impact on the plan of the EC to complete the counting process before May 19, according to the EC.

In a press statement today, EC Spokesperson Shaligram Sharma Poudel has sought to speed up the counting process with the management of required human resources by coordinating with the district-based Human Resources Management Coordination Committee. 

The statement has sought the mobilization of government including the province government employees in the counting with priority on the basis of their availability and to ensure more and more counting teams on the ground of the availability of space at the counting venues.
