KATHMANDU, June 30: Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya has said the Election Commission (EC) is making preparations for the polls as it is the EC's responsibility to conduct the federal and provincial elections by mid-December.   

Marking the beginning of the central-level review of the recently held local level election here today, Thapaliya said it was EC's responsibility to conduct the polls but a decision on the election date is yet to be taken. 

Stating that fencing the vote counting sites was a compulsion and was done citing insecurity in the local level polls, the CEC said it is unfortunate in a democracy. 

The EC has already concluded its review meetings of the local level polls in all seven provinces.
