Election by ballots... owing to flaws in computer election system
They've managed to figure out that electronic voting just is not reliable, in a country rife with corruption at every level.

Engineers opt for ballots
Thursday, September 17,2009

KATHMANDU: Nepal Engineers Association (NEA), the umbrella organisation of all engineers in the country and recognised for introducing an electronic election system here in Nepal, is to hold election by ballots on its 28th executive committee polls on Wednesday, owing to flaws in the computer election system.
Talking to the Post, Sanjeev Baral, an engineer at the Ministry of Local Development and a member of the NEA, said that a study on the unexpected results of the NEAs 27th Executive Committee election two years ago led to the discovery of a number of flaws in the computerised election system.
