Short report on party merge

Posted by Anup Baral | January 03, 2018 : Mountain Television welcomes the support and involvement of business community with their branding, sponsorship and commercials in programs.
CPN-UML has bagged the most seats in the provincial assemblies under the proportional representation (PR) category. Seats of provincial assemblies were allocated to the parties based on the votes won by the respective parties. Only 13 parties of the total 53 contesting the elections under the PR category succeeded to secure the seats. The remaining parties failed to get seats under the PR category as they failed to secure 1.5 percent votes of the total valid votes cast in the elections, as stated in the election law. The EC law has a provision not to allocate seats to those parties that fail to obtain 1.5 percent votes in provincial elections and three percent votes in parliamentary elections. The election body, however, has not allotted the PR seats for parliament following differences among commissioners over whether or not to wait for endorsement of the National Assembly ordinance by the president. Major parties are divided over whether to adopt majority-based or single transferable voting system while electing National Assembly members.

Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
