Constituency delineation commission submits report to PM
The Electoral Constituency Delineation Commission has submitted its report to Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala Monday morning, a month after it was finalised.
Chief of the committee, former justice Arjun Prasad Singh, said minor changes have been made in 47 constituencies without alternating the 240 total constituencies. He said these are technical changes only.
The government had asked the committee to review the report after the Madhesi groups protested against the delineation of the constituencies earlier. The Madhesi groups had said the delineation was not justifiable owing to the population of the Terai region.
Due to delay in receiving the report, the Election Commission has not been able to fix the election booths in Terai districts.
