Nepalese female candidates join forces

Women across various political parties participate in rallies to support female candidates in Nepalese elections.

    Very few young people or women have been nominated in Nepalese general elections scheduled for November 19.

    Female candidates have joined forces in rallies regardless of their political background after the major political parties nominated less than 11 percent women candidates out of their total nominations.

    Women across various political parties and ideologies have participated in the events.
