KATHMANDU: Voting is underway to elect new leadership of Nepal Bar Association (NBA), the umbrella organisation of legal practitioners in the country.
A total of 10,313 voters are taking part in the election process that began at 8:00 am today and will go until 4:00 pm.
The voting is taking place at 35 polling centres across the country. Three different panels representing the progressive, professional and inclusive, and greater democratic groups are competing in the election.
Altogether 63 candidates are vying for the 25-member executive committee. The new leadership — including the chair, a general secretary, a treasurer, a vice-chair (woman), and one vice-chair each representing the seven states — will be elected for a three-year term.
The vote counting will take place after all the ballot boxes are brought to Kathmandu from across the country.
