Kathmandu. Almost all of Nepal’s election results have been released since voting on November 20—two weeks ago. Even if the outcomes of each constituency are a source of concern for the general public and the entire nation, the election results in Nepal in particular have defined the 2022 elections.
Don’t be concerned if you missed those affairs. The election results in Nepal include eight interesting aspects that, in many ways, define the elections this year, according to Onlinekhabar.
1. Rastriya Swatantra Party’s emergence
The Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP), which was founded this year in June, performed remarkably well in the just-concluded parliamentary elections. The party won seven first-past-the-post members in the House of Representatives, but it is anticipated to get an additional 14 seats from the proportional representation count, which the Election Commission has not yet certified. Many commentators feel that the RSP was the party most favored by the recent Nepalese election results.

2. The defeat of communists in capitalism
In Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital city district, the communist parties did poorly in the recently released election results. They performed the worst, in actuality. Only one of the district’s ten constituencies, Kathmandu 9, was won by a communist party, as Krishna Gopal Shrestha of the CPN-UML did so.
In the Kathmandu valley, the UML and the Nepal Workers and Peasants Party won three out of 15 constituencies, including Lalitpur 2 and Bhaktapur 1, respectively. The amount is the lowest ever recorded in Nepal election results.
3. The storied past of Bhaktapur 2
Bhaktapur 2, which has not had a representative to the House since 1994, contrasts with Bhaktapur 1, which continues to be an uncontested bastion for the NWPP. The custom was upheld this time as well, with Nepali Congress leader Durlav Thapa defeating Mahesh Basnet of the UML, who was notorious for his words encouraging violence.
4. Nepotism has no place
The voters in Nepal did not give nepotism much of a chance, which was another intriguing aspect of the election results this time. This election saw the defeat of a number of candidates with political family ties. The elections were lost by several candidates, including Mohammad Firdosh Alam, the son of Mohammad Aftab Alam, Bina Magar, the daughter-in-law of Pushpa Kamal Dahal, and Manushi Yami Bhattarai. Some powerful individuals have, however, been able to nominate their loved ones for seats in the parliament using the proportional representation system.
5. Modifications to Madheshi politics
For a while, the same and established faces dominated Madheshi politics, but now the area is signaling a shift. Upendra Yadav and Rajendra Mahato, two prominent Madheshi leaders, were both defeated in the elections. The new leaders of Madhesh are CK Raut and Mahindra Raya Yadav.
6. Four new regional parties
The number of national parties has increased as a result of this election’s outcomes in Nepal, where seven parties made the list. They are the Jantaa Samajbadi Party, Janamat Party, Rastriya Swatantra Party, Rastriya Prajatantra Party, CPN-UML, and CPN-Maoist Centre.
While the Prajatantra Party raised itself to the rank of a national party, the Swatantra Party and Janamat Party are both completely new forces. The CPN-Unified Socialist led by Madhav Kumar Nepal and the Loktantrik Samajbadi Party led by Mahantha Thakur are unlikely to surpass the three percent threshold in the proportional representation count necessary to receive recognition.
7. The demise of the yesmen
This time, the yes men of the party’s top officials did not benefit from the election results in Nepal. The voters disregarded the politicians who would stand by their boss under any circumstances. Dev Gurung of the CPN-Maoist Centre, Shankar Pokhrel, Pradeep Gyawali, and Mahesh Basnet of the CPN-UML are a few of the most well-known yesmen who lost the elections.
8. Diversity of occupations represented
The results of the election in Nepal are also interesting to examine because they included individuals from a variety of professions, including journalists, scientists, businesspeople, and even doctors like Toshima Karki and CK Raut (such as Surya Thapa).
