LAMJUNG, May 26: All men have been elected to major posts in the eight local levels in Lamjung district. This includes the position of mayor in four municipalities and four positions of chairpersons of rural municipalities.

In the local level election held on May 13, National Mongol Organization had nominated Kulu Kumari Gurung for the post of Mayor in Besisahar municipality.
