KATHMANDU, Nepal–The Nepali Congress (NC), the oldest party of Nepal has eventually been emerged as the largest party in Nepal followed by CPN-UML and United Maoist while pro-monarchy Rastriya Prajatantra Party (Nepal) is all set to become the fourth biggest party in the new Constituent Assembly (CA), though its size would still be comparatively small after counting of votes that ended Thursday under the proportional representation system.

The 601-member Constituent Assembly makes up 240 members elected through direct voting under the First-Past-the-Post system while 335 through proportionate voting and 26 members would be nominated from the various segments of the societies measuring their special contributions.

According to the Election Commission (EC) of Nepal, the NC garnered 24,21,252 votes, followed by CPN-UML with 22,43,477 votes while while UCPN (Maoist) and pro-monarchy Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal is at a distant third and fourth with 14,38,666 and  6,24,284 votes respectively  in the proportional representation system.

With the party clearly securing the majority seats both under the FPTP and proportional representation, Nepal Congress is staking its claim of the government and holding various phase of consultations with the top leaders of the major political parties to form the government under its leadership, even though analysts and intellectual groups including foreign envoys are exerting pressure to form the government of national consensus that would even provide respectable position and space both for the UCPN (Maoist) that has announced to boycott after irritated with polls result and the anther Maoist faction led by Baidhya which boycotted the November 19 polls with its huge campaign.
