BIRATNAGAR, April 13: Chief Election Commissioner Dr Ayodhee Prasad Yadav today said all preparations for upcoming local- level elections scheduled for May 14 have been almost completed.
Apart from launching voting-related programme all over the country, the process to transport voter identity cards and ballot papers has been started, he informed today while speaking at a press conference in Biratnagar, Morang.
Training for main election officers and election officers from all the districts has also been over, according to him.
He also urged media to disseminate fact-based news related to the polls, saying help from people, political parties and media is crucial to conclude the election successfully.
On media reports about his alleged statement to mobilise Nepal Army in the polls, he said he brushed off the report as baseless.
Believing that Madhes-based political parties would also participate in the elections, he viewed that the government should take initiatives to create an environment conducive to hold the election with the participation of all political parties. RSS
