EC notice to TMDP

KATHMANDU: The Election Commission on Wednesday sought clarification from the Tarai Madesh Democratic Party why it has nominated as a proportional representation candidate, a person who is still employed as a government official. The Election Commission on Wednesday informed that PR candidate Bijaya Kuar Singh is an employee at the Janakpur Zonal Hospital and that the existing election laws prevent any serving government official from being a candidate for the CA election. — HNS
