Kathmandu, Nov 19 (IANS) The Election Commission of Nepal has taken action against three of its staffers in Syangja district for trying to influence polling in the Constituent Assembly elections underway Tuesday, a media report said.

According to a report in Nepalnews.com, three Election Commission staffers, who were deputed at the Janata Secondary School in Khuladidi area of the district, were removed from their duty for forming a nexus with cadres of political parties with an aim to influence the ongoing poll.

Nepal is holding elections to form its second Constituent Assembly after the first, elected in 2008, failed to finalise a much-awaited constitution that will institutionalise the republic established in 2008 after the 240-year-old monarchy was abolished.
