• Patan dhoka, Lalitpur, Nepal
  • Nepal Votes!



    With great optimism, and ending months of uncertainty, citizens in every corner of Nepal queued up to cast their ballot in the historic elections to the Constituent Assembly. Participating in the election process is a remarkable event in this young democracy, which in 2008 saw the first Constituent Assembly voted into power after the People’s Movement of 2006.

    In September, when the country was still gearing up for the elections, Hri and MPP Madan Puraskar Pustakalaya (MPP) collaborated on an exhibition of Southasian archives that included a Nepal Section aptly titled ‘The Election and the Referendum’. This showcased campaign materials, flyers and pamphlets from the 1959 first general election and the 1980 plebiscite. The election material is a part of the Madan Puraskar Pustakalaya (MPP) collection. The materials showcased at the exhibition were part of the ephemera publications.

    We share with you here vignettes from today’s polling for the Constituent Assembly in Nepal.
