Nepal Holds First Local Elections In 20 Years; 1 Killed In Violence


Nepal

Millions of Nepalese today voted in the country's first local-level polls in two decades as the Himalayan nation took a crucial step towards cementing democracy amid political turmoil.

Authorities recorded a 71 per cent voter turnout with sporadic election-related violence reported and one person killed in police firing in Dolakha district, 120 km east of Kathmandu.

The Election Commission has postponed polling in three centres -- one each in Kavre, Kalikot and Dolakha districts. 

Date for fresh voting will be announced shortly, officials said.
