  Shortest Candidate Enters Fray Aiming Big
       ARJUN POUDEL  
 
    KATHMANDU, Nov 11: All his opponents in the election are of average natural height, but this vertically challenged candidate from Lalitpur measures only 3.4 feet, probably the shortest candidate running in the upcoming CA election, trying hard to stand tall among other contestants in his constituency.

Bishnulal Gurung, who goes by the name of Jack, is a candidate of the United People"s Front of Nepal (UPFN) from constituency 3 of Lalitpur. He has been busy in door-to-door campaign just as any other candidate.

       OM ASTHA RAI  
 
    KATHMANDU, Nov 11: As the nineteenth UN climate talks, known as a Conference of the Parties (CoP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), began in Poland on Monday, Nepal faces a greater responsibility of securing climate finance not only for it but all the Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

 
  Noted Scientist Bajracharya Dies At 68
       PRATIBHA RAWAL  
 
    KATHMANDU, Nov 11: If there is one thing that people are sure about in life it is that they won’t live forever. Everyone has to take leave of this world one day.

Dr Dayananda Bajracharya, a senior scientist and professor, seemed to have realized that his last days in this world were near as he used to encourage his pupils and colleagues to work harder to promote Nepal’s science and technological research even in his absence.

 
  Govt Says Schools To Stay Open
       NIRJANA SHARMA  
 
    KATHMANDU, Nov 11: Although the Ministry of Education (MoE) has decided that academic institutions will remain open during the protest programs of the CPN-Maoist and other anti-poll parties, uncertainty looms over the conduct of classes before the constituent assembly election.

Classes remained halted on Monday in almost all private and public schools prior to the Nepal banda enforced by the CPN-Maoist, although the school administrations remained open till 5 p.m. If the government fails to avert the transport strike called from Tuesday onwards, some eight million students from pre-primary to university level will be affected for seven consecutive days.

 
  Unpredictable Tharu Voters Likely To Decide Poll Outcome In Dang
       BISHWAMANI POKHAREL/DEVENDRA BASNET  
 
    DANG, Nov 11: Nepali Congress and the UCPN (Maoist) are considered frontrunners in Dang district for the Constituent Assembly (CA) election slated for November 19.

Nevertheless, the CPN-UML also claims it is in a neck-to-neck competition.

But, any prediction at this point could been misleading as the Tharu community, which comprises half the population of the district, is hard to predict.
Any estimation at this time might fall flat as the Tharu voters, considered decisive in election outcome, in constituencies- 3, 4 and 5, are yet to make up their mind. However, the Tharu voters in constituencies 1 and 2 are found to be politically divided.
