The by-election in Tanahu – 1 and Bara – 2 constituencies will be held on April 23, according to the Election Commission. A meeting of the Election Commission on Monday fixed the date of the by-election.

The posts of lawmakers from those two constituencies have become vacant after Ram Chandra Poudal was elected as the president and Ramsahay Prasad Yadav was elected the vice president.

Poudel was earlier elected as a member of parliament from Tanahun-1 and Yadav from Bara 2 during the recently held general elections on November 20.

The by-election in Chitwan-2 will also be held on April 23. The post of an MP from Chitwan-2 is currently lying vacant as the Supreme Court ruled that Rabi Lamichhane, who was elected from the same constituency, was ineligible to become a member of House of Representatives because of his controversial citizenship certificate.
