Kathmandu: Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya has said the Election Commission has been making preparation to hold elections as holding federal and provincial elections by mid-December was its responsibility.

At a central-level review program of the recently held local-level election, Thapaliya shared that it was the responsibility of the EC to hold the federal and provincial elections and a decision is yet to be taken in this regard.

It was unfortunate to count votes in the local election by building a barbed wire fencing, which he said is due to security reason, he said.

Facilities given to employees during the poll were realistic, he said, adding that the Commission has completed a review of the local election in all seven provinces.
