Nepal legislative election: Political divide strains family ties

Legislative elections in Nepal will turn the country into a federal democratic republic, but in smaller communities, this can mean family members running against one another.

Polls have opened in Nepal which is holding the first phase of federal and state elections.

But the vote is leading to disputes in some areas.

The choice of candidates is causing tension among families in the close-knit communities along the famous Annapurna circuit.
