If everything goes as planned, with the Constituent Assembly polls Nepal will see the longest public holiday in the year. The government Wednesday announced a five-day public holiday for the Constituent Assembly polls scheduled for April 10. A cabinet meeting held today at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Baluwatar agreed to announce a public holiday from April 7 to April 10 to facilitate the people’s participation in the CA polls. The government has already announced a two week long vacation for schools starting from Wednesday. Meanwhile violation of election code of conduct and inter-party clashes continue (read here) in several districts.
