Election Commission extends deadline for PR list again

The Election Commission (EC) has once again extended the deadline for political parties to submit their lists of candidates under the proportional representation (PR) system. The EC has now extended the deadline until December 30. The previous deadline expired today.

According to EC officials, the deadline was extended due to the requests by the political parties. This is the third time that the EC has extended the deadline for the PR list. Major political parties are facing a tough time to finalize the names of the candidates for the PR system due to internal conflicts.

According to media sources, the deadline was extended to give the UCPN (Maoist) a few more days to finalize the list of their PR candidates. The UCPN (Maoist) managed to win only 26 seats under the FPTP system whereas they have received 54 seats under the PR system.
