KATHMANDU, Nov 11: The Election Commission (EC) has started conducting voter education workshop from Saturday as the first phase election of the House of Representative and provincial assembly has been left only 15 days.

Voter Education Program has been started to instruct the way to delegate the votes in the provincial assembly elections and House of Representative.

About 20 thousand employees are deployed for the voter education campaign. EC spokesperson Navaraj Dhakal told the deployed officials will actively teach the way of voting in the correct way.

The voter education program has started too late after the Supreme Court (SC) had directed the EC to separate the ballot papers on the right side of the state assembly. Earlier, the EC had started printed single ballot papers. After the order of the SC, the EC has delayed sending the ballot papers to the district.

The first phase of the House of Representative and provincial assembly elections are scheduled on November 26 in 37 constituencies of 32 districts and e second phase of election is set on December 7.
