The Election Commission, Nepal (निर्वाचन आयोग नेपाल) is the body responsible for monitoring elections, as well as registering parties andcandidates and reporting election outcomes, in Nepal. It was born out of the 1950 revolution in Nepal, and was established in law in 1951, although it has been changed somewhat by law over time. It has six members who serve for six-year terms, as established by the Interim Constitution of Nepal. During theConstituent Assembly elections in 2008, it was criticized for not fully upholding its duties, but was acknowledged to have managed the elections well nonetheless.
The first election commissioner was Subarna Shumsher Rana in 1951A.D.
