Nepal Election Date: The Government of Nepal has announced the date of the General Election. The cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuwa has fixed the date of voting for the House of Representatives, the lower house of Parliament, on November 20. Along with the House of Representatives, the cabinet has announced to hold elections for the state assembly of all the seven states of the country on the same day. Votes for Parliament and State Assembly will be cast across the country in a single phase.
Let us tell you that the Election Commission of Nepal had submitted a suggestion to the government on July 6. After the suggestion of the Election Commission, it was facing all-round criticism for not taking any decision on this for the next one month by the Deuba government. According to the Constitution of Nepal, elections to the House of Representatives must be held within five years of its term of office.
That’s why there was a delay in the announcement of the election dates.
Actually, the biggest reason behind the delayed announcement of election dates is being told to the citizenship law. The government was waiting to pass an amendment to the Citizenship Act. According to experts, with the passage of this amendment, the ruling coalition government of Nepal can get a big electoral advantage in the Madhes region. Let us tell you that the Citizenship Amendment Bill has been passed in the House of Representatives, the lower house of Parliament. Which has been sent to President Vidya Devi Bhandari for approval.
