  Weakened Baidya-led Alliance Adopts 'terror Tactics'
       KOSH RAJ KOIRALA  
 
    KATHMANDU, Nov 11: With the government adopting stringent security measures, including the arrest of party cadres on the spot, the agitating Mohan Baidya-led anti-election grouping of various fringe parties has started adopting ‘terror tactics’ to apparently enforce their strike and foil the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) poll.

Already under pressure with more than 24 of the total 33 political parties parting ways with the grouping, the Baidya-led alliance planted bombs, most of them hoaxes, and vandalized a number of vehicles Sunday night to enforce their scheduled general strike on Monday. Nevertheless, there was not even a single cadre or activist of the agitating alliance to be seen in the streets, unlike in all the strikes in the past of the mainstream political parties.

 
  Women To Man Two Polling Centers
       REPUBLICA  
 
    OKHALDHUNGA: The Election Commission (EC) has deployed only female staffs at two polling centers of the Okhaldhunga district.

The women staff are deployed at the polling center at Nepal Food Corporation depot in Okhaldhunga VDC in constituency number 1 and the polling center at the Bhagawati High School in Manebhanjyang VDC in constituency number 2.

 
  Sporadic Violence During General Strike
       REPUBLICA  
 
    KATHMANDU, Nov 11: Normal life was crippled across the country on Monday as the alliance of 33 political parities led by the CPN-Maoist imposed a nationwide general strike in a bid to foil the Constituent Assembly (CA) election slated for November 19.

All educational institutions, industries and markets remained closed across the country and vehicular movement was more or less paralyzed.
Though the agitating parties had claimed to organize a peaceful protest, many vehicles were vandalized and some even torched by the carders of the agitating parties in several parts of the country.

 
  EC Gives 2 More Days To Clear Candidacy Irregularities
       GANI ANSARI  
 
    KATHMANDU, Nov 11: The Election Commission (EC) has given two more days to candidates for the constituent assembly election whose candidacies are not in line with the existing electoral laws.

The constitutional body on Monday issued a public notice asking such candidates to furnish clarifications regarding the issue by Tuesday.

 
  Not All Voters To Get IDs: EC
       REPUBLICA  
 
    KATHMANDU, Nov 11: A week before the Constituent Assembly (CA) election, the Election Commission (EC) has admitted that it will not be able to distribute voter ID cards to all voters.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, EC Spokesperson Bir Bahadur Rai said that the commission will distribute remaining voter ID cards through district election officers after the polls.
