As of late night today while vote count continues in many constituencies around the country while some will see repolling in the next few days (out of 240 constituencies). Maoists: 110 seats; NC 32; UML 27 Plus, there is also a terrorist who got elected, thanks do democracy!
The historical election to the Constituent Assembly has surely thrown a lot of surprises so far. With underdogs securing a significant number of votes, unlike what was anticipated, some of the ‘major’ and many corrupt figures of Nepali politics have been ousted. The CPN-Maoists, who did not join the government until January 2007, has continued to lead in the CA polls results on the fourth day of vote count, registering victory at 110 seats so far.
A major party in Nepali politics, Nepali Congress has won in 32 constituencies, while the CPN-UML has been able to secure 27 seats.
Similarly, Madhes-based parties Madhesi People’s Rights Forum (MPRF), Terai Madhes Democratic Party (TMDP or Ta Ma Lo Pa) and Rajendra Mahato-led Nepal Sadbhawana Party (NSP) have won 18, 5 and 2 seats respectively.
People’s Front Nepal has so far won only in 1 constituency.
Likewise, an independent candidate has also been able to secure a seat in the 601-seats Constituent Assembly, which will decide the fate of monarchy.

1) Babban Singh
Following is a brief bio of Baban Singh:
Baban Singh alias Mr. John, the prime suspect of the serial blasts in Kathmandu last September that killed three persons and left dozens others injured was declared winner in Rautahat-1, securing 9201 votes. He defeated his nearest rival, Ajay Gupta of Sadbhawana Party, by a margin of 2613 votes. Baban, who was never seen in the public during election campaigning, used gimmicks that were probability never seen or heard before. His wife, daughters and some relatives did the campaigning for him, mostly asking the voters to give him a chance to correct himself and save him from being hanged to death for his crimes.
Posters showed him with folded hands, apparently pleading for ‘mercy’, with a noose lurching around his neck. “Hamara Ke Bachali” (Save Me) read the slogan on the poster. Baban’s family members had registered his candidature at the election office and they received the certificate of victory in the election. He didn’t show up in the victory rally after wining the election, fearing arrest.
Reports said the police are searching for him and that criminal case will be lodged at the court once he is arrested. Baban had openly admitted to have masterminded the September’s blasts in Kathmandu, describing the terror attack as an act of vengeance of Madhesi people against the state. He has been in the ‘most wanted’ list of the police for quite a long time. (source)

Why to worry. When Maoist can kill so many innocent in Chitwan. Why he can’t. Its Gun who won not Thought.
typical tunnel vision of an article. Exactimento aman, this Baban Singh also did a bombing related to politics. The maoists have clearly legitimised killing politics and politics of guns and bombs, and we have many MPs who are mass murderers, so why target him – typical Bahunist anti- madheshi clap trap.
He did not kill thousands and only killed 3, is that why he is being punished?
this usually happens in south asian plotitics.criminals corrupt and bankropts win easily here.thanks to election commision who dont know a most wanted criminal is running election.
lets hope he becomes law minister in coalation government
I can’t understand why media is advertising Baban Singh as the only person marked as terrorist (planning the serial blast in Kathmandu and killing three persons), when there are other master minds, in the same election whose plans killed thousands of people. Is it because the place Baban attacked was Kathmandu, the capital city? I am not favoring Baban, but isn’t it rediculous that the ones who directly/indirectly killed thousands are being treated as the only savior, only hope of the country. See, this is the power of media. It can divert any news in any direction it wants.
May be people voted for Baban, cause he asked to be saved, cuase his family begged for the vote, or for the fear of him. Who knows whats the whole truth. The bigger problem is that there are other master minds who have won the election, and I hope all the Nepalese won’t have to beg them some day saying “hamara ke bachali hujoor”
Well sorry for the naysaying sensitive people, but does beating the crap out of a winning candidate (the Finance Minister no less) even after nationwide victories of their party give any of you duffers the sense of peaceful coexistence with the maos in the coming days? If you believe thats normal behaviour then I have nothing to say. I tell you, even with the script you are ready to act the useful idiots again and again.
scoop-so you believe we in are in for Pol Pot part 2 in Nepal then? You must live in dreadful fear.
i guess for u to be worried you need pol pot. i get worried just with a one party, dictatorial communist rule. if i live in dread i would have packed my bags by now. thats the problem i wish i was petrified atleast i’d leave.
u see with benefit of doubt to the maoists they are just executing their plan, this is stage 3, next plan will be integrated in to na , then they will take control completely – this is not an overnight transition – many things need adjustment as they intend to stay a very long time after – 30 years seems about right. rushing into power leads to mistakes and an early exit. so they will take their time – 2 years maybe.
they have just used useful idiots all along to assist their goal. they are not your run of the mill politicians. they had a plan, have one and will make sure they will execute it to the tee, especially with everyone being so welcoming.
oh forgot to ask what of yor business plans? feel confident in the new nepal?
scoop-I am concerned about the ramifications of the coming Maoist rule. I stated that already. Their previous track record worries me. However I am also hopeful that once in govt. they will become more responsible-this has usually been the case with most political parties unless you look at the extreme case of the Nazis or the Khmer Rouge. So despite the fact that I have my doubts about the Nepali Maoists I am willing to give them a chance. So far both Prachanda and Baburam are making the right noises-that it is committed to multi-party democracy, that they will uphold the freedom of the press, they will work with the private sector on a liberal economy, attract foreign investment etc. I understand that these are at the moment mere words and what they will exactly remains to be seen.
Yes I am confident about my business plans and am already in the process of expanding it putting my own hard earned money into my country’s economy. I guess I am an optimist. Funnily enough most of my colleagues who are also businessman also seem cautiously confident. Who knows we may end up looking like fools but I can’t see myself living with the most of the negative bloggers seem to have adopted after the Maoist election victory.
Read the many comments you yourself have recently written on this website. You sound positively hysterical that the sky is falling on all our heads. If the Maoists turn out to be as bad as you prophesize I will be the first to join your anti-Maoists bandwagon. But for now I remain positive.
Yes I think atleast the likes of Prachanda and Baburam have learnt many things in the past 2 years. For now the dissenting voices of the party have no choice but to follow the duo. However, if things get difficult we will see them revert to the “other” camp. You don’t want to know what that is.
Having said that it will be more difficult for the private sector – it will remain but you have to start paying the workers better and give them more facilities, more taxes as well. Lower profits, higher workers welfare and correctly so.
I am happy to see comments of Kirat a businessman but tell us do you give your staff health insurance, education allowance, permanancy, a good gratuity etc.? Does your profits reflect your wages?Do you book losses by writing in every possible expense also not borne by the company? Do you pay all taxes? Do you show all income? Is your profit margins exhorbitant bordering on indirect extortion? The private sector have to reflect on this seriously and if serious about helping this nation then it is time to give back more in meaningful ways through salary, benefits and honest taxes. Sorry, Kirat nothing against you personally, I am sure your practices may be sound but it is a general reflection on the business community brought on by your lovely comment.
Good for you Kirat. Well the naysayers have been more or less correct up to now. That’s if you’ve read the script. Anyway, on the flip side if the maoists all of a sudden do good for this nation (with no compromise on universal human rights), I myself will register to vote wherever Prachanda stands from and vote for the man.
In a country like Nepal naysayers have it easy…who has ever done well for Nepal? When even the King did not seem to care much for his kingdom…what chance the UML, Congress or Maobadi… So to be a naysayers is the easiest safest route to take. To change the script is the challenge.
One’s terrorists are another’s freedom fighters!
I will not be surprised if some Madhesi party issues press release demanding immediate cancellation of case of Mr. Baban. poor Madhesh! poor Nepal! Poor Nepali!
