KATHMANDU: The number of polling centres where voting was halted owing to various reasons has reached 79 so far, according to the Election Commission Nepal. The local level election was held across the country on May 13.

Voting was postponed in 28 municipalities of 16 districts as of 10:00 pm on Saturday night, as per the information received by the EC through election officers.

Disputes and subsequent clashes led to postponement of voting in districts such as Jumla, Saptari, Kavrepalanchok, Rautahat, Ramechhap, Bara, Bajura and Parbat among others.

According to the EC, the total number of postponements might differ since discussions were being held among the concerned parties whether to count votes or conduct re-voting in the polling centres in such places.

The counting of votes has already begun in most of the local levels.
