Nepali Congress wins most votes in elections.
BBC | KATHMANDU | 28 November 2013:: The centrist Nepali Congress party won the most votes in last week’s general elections, latest results announced on Thursday show.
The Maoists – who formed the single largest party in the previous Constituent Assembly – have been relegated to third place.
They have complained that the results have been systematically rigged.
The vote is seen as vital in moving Nepal towards political stability after a 10-year Maoist revolt ended in 2006.
Final results in the vote – conducted through a mixture of direct voting and proportional representation – are expected over the weekend.
The previous assembly – elected in 2008 after the abolition of the monarchy – was won by the former rebels. But the Constituent Assembly (CA) was bitterly divided and failed to write a new constitution.
The Congress party has said that it may now form a government of national unity that would include the Maoists and the Communist Party of Nepal (UML) which came second in the vote.
On Thursday, the Election Commission said counting of votes under the proportional representation system had been completed. It said that the Nepali Congress party had won more than 2.4 million votes while the Maoists had won about 1.4 million votes.
Experts say that the Nepali Congress has won about 200 seats in the 601-member CA while the Maoists will only get about 80 seats.
The UML has won about 175 seats, ahead of the pro-monarchy Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal and about nine parties which represent the Madeshi community in the south.
Officials said that more than 70% of the 12 million eligible Nepalese voters cast their ballots in the elections held on 19 November.
They said Nepal might have to wait for least at another two months to get a new government. Click Here>>Complete Reading Courtesy: BBC.

The Nepalese U-Maoists-the Anti Hindu Forces & Madhesi have Got Fizzle out from the CA Election.
By Dirgha Raj Prasai.
Nepal is a sovereign ancient nation with its traditional identity. Nepal is known as the place from where world civilization started. The Maoists’ party and Madhesi have been trying to divide the nation by advocating federalism by the hints of the Indian Intelligence Agency RAW. But, the Maoist and Madhesi have got fizzle out in the election. The Maoist leader Prachanda has lost his position in Kathmandu booth in the 2nd CA election and he said that he and his party do not accept the results of the election. Nepal has languished in political deadlock since the Maoists laid down arms seven years ago, with six governments failing to forge a constitution. Nepal’s giant neighbours, India and China, as well as western donors, have grown increasingly concerned about the prolonged struggle to build a stable nation may be to replace the Nepal’s old monarchy. Without effective government with constitutional, the country can’t save its sovereignty and not to be able to utilize the natural resources and develop internal production.
In this election, Congress and UML have got top votes challenging the ‘One Madhes, one Pradesh’ Limbuwan, Khambuwan and ethnic-based federalism including the U-Maoist’s notorious egoistic challenges. We know, the leaders of Congress, UML are also almost corrupts and traitors. The Congress leaders- Sher Bahadur Deuwa, Ram Chandra Paudel, Krishna Sitoula and UML leaders- Madhavb Nepal, Jhalanath, Subash Nembang, Bamdev Gautam are corrupts and no so good. The Congress and UML’s corrupted regime had created the Maoists’ war. After all, it became the people’s compulsion to chase away these anarchists and ethnic based federalists. Then, it became necessary to vote among the evil elements of Congress and UML also. Now and then, we hope, the Congress, UML will join their hands with the nationalist forces like-RPP-Nepal for the stability and unity among the Nepalese people.

It is necessary to point that RAW has been defaming ‘INDIA’. The Maoists, who revolt to overthrow the Nepalese monarchy and Hindu nation by the hints of RAW, emerged as the single-largest party during the last CA election (2008). But during this year CA election, while the vote counting was in progress during midnight of 20th Nov 2013, the anti-Maoist parties- Congress and UML was in leading position at almost all the CA seats then the Maoist uttered an immediate end of vote counting and a review of the whole process of the election. The U-Maoist would be boycotted before the CA election. After 24 hours, The Madhesi parties also followed the path of U-Maoist boycotting the vote counting after losing the seat of CA election. But, after 36 hours, the Maoist Prachanda is elected from Seraha and Upendra Yadhav and Bijaya Gachhedar are elected in another booth. Then, why they are going to boycott? It is very shameful for Nepalese voters and the international communities to hear such news.
