Nepal Votes: Incumbent Bhandari Tracking to Win

With this President Bhandari is the first President of federal Nepal.

She was first elected president in 2015, shortly after Nepal's post-war constitution was passed, which carves out one-third of seats in parliament for woman and mandates that either the president or vice president must be a woman.

Two years later, as Bhandari gets re-elected for a fresh five-year term, not everyone is happy. She has thus also set the record as the first female president of Nepal. The NC alleged that she did not rise over her previous party's interests, and some UML leaders have accused her of running her own coterie of supporters from Sitwal Niwas. She joined the political in her teens and was part of a campaign against monarchy's centuries-long rule and later married communist leader Madan Bhandari. Bhandari defeated Kumari Laxmi Rai from Opposition Nepali Congress with a staggering majority in the Presidential election.

Bhandari is not the only woman at the top of Nepal's government. Likewise, 549 provincial assembly members were eligible to exercise their franchise in the presidential election, of which 13 were absent during the vote casting.

"Bhandari received the largest number of votes", Navaraj Dhakal, a spokesman for the Election Commission, said.

The CPN-UML carries a total vote bank of 23,356 in the country, with 148 lawmakers in the Federal Parliament and 243 in the Provincial Assemblies, while the CPN (Maoist Centre) has 65 lawmakers in the Parliament and 108 in the Provincial Assemblies, which total the vote bank for 10,319.

There is a clear indication that Bhandari has been unable to dissociate herself from her previous party.

She was elected twice in parliamentary elections in 1994 and 1999 and also served as the defence minister.
