As Nepal is at the polls to elect a new President for the country, incumbent President Bidhya Devi Bhandari looks poised to win a second term. President Bhandari garnered over 74 percent of the votes to be re-elected. The vote weightage of lawmaker of Federal Parliament is 79, whereas it is 48 of the lawmakers from the Provincial Council.

Lawmakers from the national parliament and provincial assemblies voted in the presidential election.

Bhandari is a close ally of the ruling Communist bloc that has a strong majority in parliament as well as six of the seven provincial assemblies.

Three nominated members to the National Assembly could not vote as their case is sub-judice at the Supreme Court while House of Representatives member Resham Chaudhary, who is in police custody in connection to the 2015 Tikapur carnage, was deemed ineligible to vote.

As a teenager, she joined a student wing of an underground communist party and married its charismatic leader Madan Bhandari, who died in a jeep crash in 1993.

During her first two-year term, Bhandari was accused of failing to be the Head of the State in the true sense.

She will be administered the oath of office by the Chief Justice on Wednesday. She won the by-election from Kathmandu-1 defeating the former Prime Minister Krishna Prasad Bhattarai of Nepali Congress.

China always respects and supports the Nepalese people's independent choice of social system and development path, and believes that Nepal will make greater achievements under the leadership of Bhandari and the Nepalese government. Constitution experts and analysts say her inability to be a unifying figure could hurt not just the presidential institution, but also the republic that is still in its infancy.
