    More than 60,000 candidates are competing for votes in the second phase of Nepal's first election in two decades.

    But the main party supported by the minority Madheshi community in the south is boycotting the vote over what they say is a lack of representation.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Chaderjian reports.
