The CPN Maoist had recommended Rekha Thapa as the party candidate in Parsa 1 constituency. But, when the nomination was filed, it was found that Rekha’s name wasn’t in the Election Commission’s voters list. A candidate can’t participate in election if the name is not in the voters’ list.
Rekha says, “CPN Maoist had respectfully chosen me as one of the candidates. I had registered myself as a voter in Kathmandu. But, because of the technical problem in the Election Commission, my name was missing in the voters’ list.”
