Local Bodies Elections And Challenges Ahea

Posted by Anup Baral December 16, 2016 :
Nepal’s democracy is faced with such a dilemma that 68.38% of the total registered voters (above the age of 18) have not cast a vote even once in their lifetime and a huge group under the age of 33 years today have not even participated once in the election of local bodies and experienced local democratic processes and practices. If the present situation continues for another ten years, the number of people who participate in the local elections in their life time will come down to zero. Due to lack of elections people are deprived of right to participate in the activities of local development. This is a big vacuum in the political process. If one can hold the elections, it can protect the civic rights of the people and help to bring people's participation in decision making process. If we hold the elections, we can quantum leap in development process.
