EC official website not updated
The poll results of at least 236 locals units are out by 11 am Friday. But the official website of Election Commission has only updated the results of 65 local units.
The chief returning officers deployed in various local levels have to send the poll results to district election offices. They release information only after sending the poll results to higher bodies. The district election offices have to send the information to the Election Commission. This means the poll results are first and officially received by the Election Commission. But the EC website has only shown 27 percent poll results.
The commission is also facing criticisms for sluggish vote counting.
EC secretary Gopinath Mainali has accepted that that the EC is delaying to release the poll results.
"We're facing problem due to lack of enumerators. And only the official results sent by the Commission itself are used for updating the official site." Mainali informed Setopati.
He further said that the commission is preparing to manage it properly for the second phase election.
