The province and fed­eral par­lia­ment elec­tion to be held on 26 Novem­ber and 10 De­cem­ber is go­ing to elect 330 provin­cial MPs and 165 fed­eral par­lia­ment MPs. In the first phase of elec­tion, 128 MPs will be elected for fed­eral par­lia­ment and 256 MPs will be elected for the provin­cial par­lia­ment. Like­wise, the sec­ond phase of elec­tions will elect 37 MPs for fed­eral par­lia­ment and 74 MPs for provin­cial par­lia­ment. In the re­cent lo­cal level elec­tions, UML had bagged 2 mil­lion 753 thou­sand 119 votes. Maoist Cen­ter had 940 thou­sand 199 votes. If added the votes bagged by UML and Maoist Cen­ter, to­gether, it be­comes 3 mil­lion 693 thou­sand 318 votes. In the same elec­tions, NC had bagged 2 mil­lion 658 thou­sand 387 votes. The votes of UML-MC al­liance are more than 1 mil­lion 34 thou­sand 931 votes than the to­tal votes bagged by NC. Un­der this anal­y­sis, UML lead­ers have cal­cu­lated that in the up­com­ing elec­tions the Left al­liance will bag 60 per­cent seats in both provin­cial and fed­eral par­lia­ment elec­tions. If UML and Maoist will be able to se­cure the votes they had re­ceived in the lo­cal elec­tions, the Left al­liance is sure to bag sim­ple ma­jor­ity in the fed­eral par­lia­ment, how­ever, NC and its greater Demo­cratic al­liance has to at­tract fur­ther votes. Po­si­tion of the lead­ers: NC pres­i­dent Sher Ba­hadur Deuba is con­test­ing elec­tion from Dadeld­hura. Maoist leader Kha­garaj Bhatta has given can­di­da­ture from the Left al­liance. In the last CA elec­tions, UML had bagged 16915 votes, Maoist Cen­ter (MC) had bagged 10945 votes. RPP, part­ner of the Demo­cratic al­liance, had bagged only 268 votes. Dur­ing that time Deuba had re­ceived 19523 votes and was elected CA mem­ber. After the Left al­liance, Deuba is fac­ing inse­cure in his own elec­toral con­stituency.
