Voting Begins To Elect New Parliament In Nepal


Kathmandu: Millions of Nepalese began voting on Sunday to elect a new parliament and provincial assemblies amid tight security, hoping to end the political instability that has plagued the country for more than a decade and impeded growth.

The polling started at 7 am local time at over 22,000 polling centres and will close at 5 pm. The counting of the votes will begin soon after the polling ends but final results are expected within a week.

More than 17.9 million eligible voters will elect a 275-member House of Representatives.
