Still waiting for the LBRC and the first local election since 1997: local politicians, here in Chitwan.
Ever tried to contact a ministry by email and never get a reply? Well, many have, and now the chairman of the Local Bodies Restructuring Commission (LBRC) has too. Trying for a second time to write the Ministry of Local Development and Federal Affairs to get data on Ilakas – the areas supposed to form the territorial basis of Nepal’s future local bodies – without getting a reply, the LBRC is about to give up on time frames and deadlines. We can’t set a deadline with such lack of cooperation from the government, says an LBRC official. So,
when will the Commission’s work be completed and local elections take place? Well, not in April next year as otherwise planned just a month ago, according to the LBRC itself. Maybe the year after, then?
Get the full brief here.
