CA court scraps case against Bhandari’s victory
The Constituent Assembly (CA) court Tuesday upheld the CA elections result of Mahottari district constituency-6.
The court verdict armoured the victory of Madhesi People’s Rights Forum (MPRF) candidate Sarad Singh Bhandari from the constituency.
The CA court scrapped the petition filed against Bhandari saying that the case should have been filed before the final election results.
Nepali Congress and CPN-Maoist, among other parties’ candidates, filed a joint petition claiming that there was vote rigging.
The CA court, prior to taking the decision, ordered the plaintiffs to furnish extra proofs.
Bhandari had won the election under first-past-the post system garnering 6862 votes, which was just 21 more than his nearest rival, NC candidate Sitaram Bhandari.
