Chief election commissioner says

preparation for polls completed
KATHMANDU, Nov 17 /Chief Election Commissioner Nilkanha Upreti has said that all preparations, including security provision for November 19 Constituent Assembly (CA) polls, have been completed.
“All sorts of preparations have been completed. Security provision is also good. We are ready to accomplish a great function to institutionalize the democracy,” the Chief Election Commissioner said.
At a program organized by the Reporters’ Club in the capital Saturday Upreti urged the voters to cast votes in a fearless manner on November 19 as the poll boycotters have also vowed not to obstruct the election.
Chief Election Commissioner Upreti also informed that the silent period would start from Saturday midnight and the publicity campaign would also end for the political parties and candidates.
On the occasion, Upreti urged the voters to be ready to go to the polling centers to cast votes with voters’ rolls or citizenship or other identity cards issued by the state-owned agencies in case the voters’ roll were not provided.
He said over 400,000 human resources, including 200,000 security personnel, have been deployed to conduct the polls and added that he was confident of completion of the CA polls in a historic way to institutionalize the changes brought about by the people’s power.
