The Election Commission has decided not to conduct a re-election in Syangja Region No. 2 and Bajura.

The commission has also given instructions to start the counting of votes for the election held on November 20.

In the meeting held today, the commission decided to count votes instead of conducting a re-election.

After CPN-UML claimed rigging in Syangja 2 and Bajura, the party demanded re-voting.

CPN-UML did not allow counting of votes to begin, demanding re-voting stating that some polling stations at Syangja 2 were rigged.

Nepali Congress Vice Chairman Dhanraj Gurung, leaders Ram Chandra Poudel and Pradeep Poudel approached the Election Commission and demanded that the counting of votes be started immediately.

Congress vice president Gurung and UML secretary Padma Aryal are competing in this field.

But the Nepali Congress staged a sit-in at the election officer's office, Walling, demanding the start of Gurung vote counting.

Due to disputes in some polling stations, the counting of votes could not be done in Bajura as well. Even though re-election was held in some centers of Budhinanda Municipality, the counting of votes could not be started due to disputes between the parties regarding other centers.

CPN-UML candidate Karn Thapa and Nepali Congress candidate Badri Pandey are competing in Bajura.

Due to disputes in Syangja-2, Bajura and Dolakha, the counting process was interrupted. The Commission sent separate teams under the leadership of Joint Secretaries Tulsi Prasad Shrestha, Phanindra Gautam and Yagya Prasad Bhattarai to study these places.
