  • Nepal elections 2017

The house of representatives consists of 275 members, of which 165 would be elected directly under the first-past-thepost system while the remaining 110 will come through the proportional representation system.

The alliance of the Communist Parties of Nepal Unified Marxist-Leninist (CPN-UML) and the Maoist Center (CPN-MC) marches towards victory in the recent general elections held here, according to the first results.

"This is a clear indication that the Left alliance will get more than majority votes needed to form a government", said Sudheer Sharma, editor of the popular Kantipur newspaper.

Although much remains to declare a victor, the first counts and projections point to the triumph of the two forces, led respectively by former prime ministers K. P. Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal (Prachanda). The political instability has been blamed for slow progress in Nepal, one of the world's poorest countries. So far, less than 4 percent have been rebuilt.

Early tallies from Thursday's vote show the leftists lead in 63 out of 80 constituencies where counting has begun.

Voting in two-phased parliamentary and provincial assembly elections were held on November 26 and December 7.

Guna Raj Luintel, editor of the daily Nagarik, said it was nearly certain the leftist alliance would win.

In this phase, 67 per cent voter turnout was registered.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the elections marked "a historic moment for Nepal in implementing its federal structure as enshrined in the 2015 Constitution".

Election officials in Nepal on Friday began counting votes for national and provincial assemblies, the first time the Himalayan nation went to the polls to elect new federal units with the hope of bringing government closer to rural and remote areas. Two years later, Nepal officially abolished the centuries-old monarchy and decided that a federal system would best deliver services to all corners of the nation.

In 2015, when Nepal adopted a new Constitution that split it into seven states, dozens of people were killed in ethnic clashes over territory and rights. Protesters had blocked the border with India for months, cutting off fuel and other supplies in Nepal.
