When more than a dozen votes were wasted as void on Saturday's presidential election because they were not cast correctly, in separate meetings constituent assembly members from CPN(M), NC and MJF were taught how to cast votes. At the committee office in Singha Durbar, Maoist representatives practiced the voting procedure on a blackboard. Each parliamentary member was taught to write 'Ram Raja Prasad Singh' and put a tick mark next to the name. Some of the members said they'd unknowingly put two tick marks on their vote, some had put in their signature and one had even drawn in a hammer and sickle. Meanwhile, the NC directed its members to be punctual and to cast their vote on time if they wanted their candidates to win.
