77 years old, Mr Deuba secured 25,534 votes against his nearest rival Sagar Dhakal, 31, who got 1,302 votes. Shri Deuba has never lost any parliamentary election in his political career of five decades. He is a young engineer who had an argument with Mr. Deuba five years ago during a public debate on the BBC’s Common Questions programme, after which he decided to challenge Mr. Deuba, saying that now youth are not allowed to enter politics. There should be a chance and people like senior Deuba should be given rest.

Mr. Deuba, the President of the Nepali Congress, is currently holding the office of the Prime Minister for the fifth term. The ruling Nepali Congress has so far secured 10 seats in the House of Representatives (HOR), while it is leading in 46 other constituencies.

CPN-UML K.P. Oli has so far won three seats and is leading in 42 seats. Elections to the HOR and seven provincial assemblies were held on Sunday. The counting of votes began on Monday.

Of the 275 members of parliament, 165 will be elected through direct voting, while the remaining 110 will be elected through a proportional election system. Similarly, out of a total of 550 members of provincial assemblies, 330 would be directly elected and 220 would be elected proportionally.
