Vote counting kicks off in Kathmandu, Rautahat, Sarlahi, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur

Kathmandu: Vote counting of the Constituent Assembly election held yesterday has begun in various districts from early in the morning. According to District Election Office (DEO) Kathmandu, counting of the votes of Kathmandu-4 has already begun, while counting for the other constituencies’ will also start in a short while. The delay of counting of ballots from other constituencies is attributed to the all-party-meeting to thrash out the criteria for invalid votes.
Meanwhile, large number of people has thronged to the International Convention Centre in New Baneshwor, where vote counting is scheduled to be held.
The DEO, however, informed that it may take at least 24 hours to publish the final election results of all 10 constituencies in Kathmandu.
Likewise, vote counting has begun in many constituencies across the country. Counting of ballots has started in Rautahat, Sarlahi, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur, among others.
