The Nepali Congress is leading the tally in the ongoing counting of votes under the House of Representatives (HoR) and Province Assembly (PA) elections held on November 20.
Out of 165 electoral constituencies, the results of the vote counting of 155 constituencies under the first-past-the-post (FPTP) category have already been announced, said the Election Commission.
The Nepali Congress tops the vote count with 52 seats followed by the CPN-UML with 41 seats.
The CPN (Maoist Centre) holds 17 seats, CPN (Unified Socialist) 10 seats, the Rastriya Swatantra Party and the Rastriya Prajatantra Party seven seats each.
Five seats have been confirmed for Janata Samajbadi Party, four seats for the Lokatantrik Samajbadi Party, and three seats for Nagarik Unmukti Party.
Meanwhile, the five independent candidates have been elected under the FPTP category of the HoR election so far.
The Nepal Workers and Peasants Party, the Janamat Party, and the Rastriya Janamorcha have each won one HoR seat under the FPTP category.
The Election Commission stated that the vote count results of 10 electoral constituencies are still awaited.
“The delay in announcing the results in these constituencies is because of the delayed vote counting in some constituencies and counting not starting at all in the remaining constituencies.”
There has been a delay in the counting of votes in Bajura where the re-voting was held on Saturday. So far, the results of Dolakha-1; Syangja-2; Sunsari-1, 3 and 4; Bajura; Ilam-1; Udayapur-1; and Ramechhap constituencies are awaited.
The vote counting is in progress in seven constituencies in which Nepali Congress is leading the vote-count tally in four constituencies, the UML in two constituencies, and the Rastriya Swatantra Party in one constituency. The vote counting is yet to begin in Dolakha, Syangja-2 and Bajura.
