KATHMANDU, Nepal- With only 29 days remaining for the day of the elections of Constituent Assembly, political parties here have been intensifying poll campaigns targeting voters across the nation.
The political parties have been organizing door-to-door campaigning, election gathering, mass gathering, rally, miking among other to seek support in the CA elections slated for November 19.
The Election Commission has this time banned on use of any type of wall painting, banner and posters.
A total of 6,000 candidates belonging to 130 political parties are contesting the elections. The candidates are canvassing by reaching voters directly, saying that their victory will ensure a promulgation of a new constitution.
Most of the political parties have also finalized their party’s election manifesto letting the public know about their plans and programmes which they intended to do after they won the elections.
With the same zest, former prime ministers, top leaders of major parties and their cadres are going door-to-door to seek voters’ support.
People are not much enthusiastic about the upcoming elections, as the first CA elected in 2008 failed to draft a new constitution. Voters are skeptical whether a new CA will draft the constitution.
Political parties spent billions of dollars in the name of drafting a new constitution but only ended up dissolving the CA, which has angered the general public.
The country is holding a second round of elections for drafting a new constitution after the CA was dissolved in May last year.
