Nepal polls: PM Deuba wins HoR seat from Dadeldhura
Kathmandu, Nov 23 (PTI) Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has been elected with a huge margin of votes from Dadeldhura constituency in far west Nepal for the seventh consecutive time.
Deuba, 77, secured 25,534 votes against his nearest rival Sagar Dhakal, 31, an independent candidate who received 1,302 votes. Deuba has never lost any parliamentary election in his five decades of political career.
Dhakal is a young engineer, who had a verbal squabble with Deuba during a public debate at a BBC's Sajha Sawal programme five years ago, after which he decided to challenge Deuba saying that now youths should get chance in politics and senior people like Deuba should get rest.
