KATHMANDU, May 13: The local level election held across the country today has concluded in a peaceful and encouraging manner, said the Election Commission (EC).

The poll successfully concluded barring some incidents, said the EC's Spokesperson Joint Secretary Shaligram Sharma Paudel. He said that there have been some incidents in some places leading deferral of the poll

Addressing a regular press conference of the EC today, Spokesperson Sharma said the exact number of votes cast is yet to come by as the voting continued until late so as to allow those already in a queue to cast their vote. 

Stating that the weather condition was favourable for voters, Sharma thanked those employed for the poll for their unwavering support.

Vote count will begin today night in accessible areas after transporting to ballot boxes to safety after organising an all-party discussion, he said. Election process was halted in some polling stations in various districts including Jumla, Saptari, Kavre, Rautahat, Ramechhap, Bara, Bajura and Parbat following disputes and subsequent clashes, according to the EC. ---
