POKHARA, May 14: The vote counting of Pokhara Metropolis has not started yet. Due to the delay in making the identity card of the election representatives, the vote counting is likely to take additional time.

Although the District Election Office, Kaski, said that the vote counting will start by 2PM, the counting could not proceed due to delay in the selection for representatives. The vote counting may still take some time as the process to issue identity cards is still underway.

Krishna Thapa is the Mayoral candidate from the CPN-UML while Manjudevi Gurung is the Deputy Mayoral candidate from the party. Likewise, Dhanraj Acharya is the Mayoral candidate, while Kopila Ranabhatt is the candidate for the Deputy Mayoral from the ruling coalition. 

Of the total 207,712 registered voters, 143,228 votes were cast on Friday.
