After two days of the government’s announcement of the date for local elections, the Election Commission on Wednesday made public the election schedule.

As per the schedule, the casting vote on the voting day is fixed from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm on May 14. With the announcement of election programme, the EC has issued a 19-point directive seeking government’s help.

As some of the voting centers are likely to be placed in the schools premises, Election commission has requested to halt the teaching-learning activities in the schools for a week.

The educational institutions have been requested to halt teaching learning activities from May 8 (Baishakh-25) till the completion of the election (i.e. 31st Baishak, 2074)
