Kathmandu: Nepal's CPN-UML emerged as the largest party in the Himalayan nation as vote counting of the first-past-the-post (FPTP) for Parliament and provincial assembly elections in Nepal came to an end on Wednesday, the Election Commission said.

The Communist Party of Nepal-United Marxist Leninist was able to secure 80 out of the total 165 seats under the FPTP category of the Parliament. The party garnered 166 out of 330 seats in provincial assembly polls, the Kathmandu Post reported.
The CPN (Maoist Centre) led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal "Prachanda" became the second largest party by winning 36 seats in Parliament and 73 seats in provincial assembly under the FPTP category.
The Nepali Congress (NC), which was the largest party in the last election, managed to win 23 seats in Parliament and was elected in
45 provincial constituencies, said the Election Commission.
It became the third largest party this time.
Though the Election Commission announced the final outcomes of the federal and provincial assembly elections on Wednesday, vote counting for the proportionate representation category was still underway.
Navaraj Dhakal, a spokesman for Nepal's Election Commission, told Xinhua news agency that the vote counting for the proportionate representation category was also coming to an end and the results will be made public soon.
