This summer, local elections were for the first time in 20 years. For Nepalis, they celebrate these elections and have a great appreciation of democracy. According to the article there was a 65% voter turnout. That shows voter “want to”. For many villages, medical treatment is 6 hours away from the village and education is only basic. As Sonam Sherpa summarized, “You should demand basic things like telephones, drinking water, health care and good schools“. That sounds like some good political talk!
