Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has inquired about the possibility of holding the election to the members of the State Assemblies and the House of Representatives in a single phase. 

During his meeting today with the Election Commission officials, Chief Election Commissioner Dr Ayodhee Prasad Yadav briefed that the constitutional deadline for the election is approaching nearer and it seemed difficult to conduct the elections in a single phase in the context when required laws to organise the election and a report of the Electoral Constituency Delimitation Commission are awaited, as stated by EC Spokesperson Surya Prasad Sharma. 

The EC high-level delegation informed the Prime Minister that the House of Representatives' election is possible to conduct in the third week of November and they need more time for further discussions  to determine whether both election in a single round is possible or not.
