KATHMANDU: Ahead of the upcoming National Assembly (NA) election, the Election Commission (EC) has introduced a monetary constraint, capping the maximum allowable expenditure for candidates at Rs 350,000.
According to an official press statement, candidates are permitted to allocate this budget for various campaign-related expenditures, including the procurement of voter lists, transportation, fuel, publicity, supplies, seminars, interactions, office operations, and the deployment of representatives.
