Nayanagang city corporation election is set. Election Commission has confirmed the candidature of 6 candidates after screening. Two of them are part mayors and one is female with strong political background.
City Corporation elections are local elections. Constitutionally these are non political elections. Party will not nominate any candidate and no party should express their support for any candidate.
Political leaders sometime try to break the rule and this so happen in case of Narayangang election. While the expectation from the political leaders are poor, we have high hope on the media. But we feel frustrated when leading media fails to honour the rule.
