NC leader Sitaula to contest polls under FPTP


SURUNGA, JHAPA — Nepali Congress leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula has said that he would contest the elections of the House of Representatives under the first-past-the-post (FPTP) electoral system.

Addressing the cadres’ meet here today, Sitaula said that he would contest the polls from Jhapa Constituency No. 3 and would not opt for the proportional seat.
