People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

The Elec­tion Com­mis­sion said it started print­ing sep­a­rate bal­lot pa­pers of the first­past-the-post elec­tions of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and pro­vin­cial assem­blies. In a writ­ten re­sponse to the Supreme Court Chief Elec­tion Com­mis­sioner said this. Fur­nish­ing the re­sponse by As­sis­tant At­tor­ney Gen­eral GhanShyamOjha on be­half of the Of­fice of the At­tor­ney Gen­eral on the case filed against defama­tion of the court, DrYa­dav said that works have al­ready been started for print­ing sep­a­rate bal­lot pa­pers for the first-past-the-post elec­toral sys­tem. Ac­cord­ing to RSS, the EC has writ­ten to the Janak Ed­u­ca­tion Ma­te­rial Cen­tre on Sun­day it­self for print­ing the bal­lot pa­pers of Baitadi, Ba­jhang, Darchula, Ba­jura and Ja­jarkot districts by re­spect­ing the SC's ver­dict, reads the re­sponse. Ear­lier, the SC had is­sued an or­der in the name of EC hear­ing a writ pe­ti­tion filed by the Ras­triyaJanata Party Nepal leader Sar­ben­dra NathShukla de­mand­ing sep­a­rate bal­lot pa­pers for the prov­ince and fed­eral lev­els in the polls. On Oc­to­ber 24, leader Shukla had again reached the SC to file case against the Chief Elec­tion Com­mis­sioner and four other com­mis­sion­ers and the prime min­is­ter for defama­tion of the court. Hear­ing the case, a sin­gle bench of Jus­tice Dam­bar Ba­hadur Shahi sought writ­ten re­sponse from the EC within three days re­gard­ing the progress be­ing made in the print­ing of sep­a­rate bal­lot pa­pers for House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tive and State Assem­blies elec­tion.
