NEA adopts special alertness to ease vote counting


    KATHMANDU: The Nepal Electricity Authority has adopted special alertness after receiving complaints of power supply disruption in some places where the counting of votes is taking place.

    Problems were reported in power supply in some districts including Dhading, Chitwan and Nuwakot due to the weather change.

    NEA spokesperson Prabal Adhikari said that state-owned Authority was making every possible effort to make the power supply regular, even by adopting the alternative measures.

    “The Authority is most concerned that any problem in power supply should not hamper the  counting of votes of the local level elections, which is of national importance,” added Adhikari.

    He requested one and all to immediately contact the NEA’s local power distribution centre if any problem was seen in the power supply.

    Meanwhile, NEA has also mobilised a special team round-the-clock in all 34 districts where the counting of votes is underway after the first phase of local level elections, which were held on May 14.
