Voter education will be made effective to prevent invalidation of ballot papers: EC

The Election Commission has said that it would make the voter education program effective to prevent the invalidation of ballot papers in the elections

The Election Commission has said that it would make the voter education program effective to prevent the invalidation of ballot papers in the elections.

At a program organized at the Election Commission on Tuesday, Chief Election Commissioner Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya said that the voter education program would be made effective by correcting the past mistakes.

During a discussion with the mediapersons, EC spokesperson Shaligram Sharma Paudel said that the poll body sought suggestions to make the voter education more effective.

He further said that the 116 parties registered at the Commission have been urged to register the parties again to take part in the upcoming elections.

Paudel said that an application with the decision of the Central Committee should be submitted to the Election Commission if two or more than two parties want to contest the elections with the same electoral symbol.

He was of the opinion that the preparations for the upcoming elections are going on in full swing.

The federal and provincial elections are going to be held on November 20.
