Preliminary analysts project Bhandari to win with an overwhelming majority.

According to the figures released by the Election Commission, her rival, Laxmi Rai, who was fielded by the opposition Nepali Congress, was defeated with a wide margin.

Nepal held elections for its national parliament and provincial assemblies in November and December past year.

Bhandari, 56, won since her nomination was backed by the ruling Left alliance of the CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Centre), the Sanghiya Samajbadi Forum-Nepal and other fringe parties.

The voting had begun from 10:00 am and went on till 3:00 pm today. Bhandari's first term as the President of Nepal started in 2015.

"We have made the arrangements to count the votes after the voting concludes. the results will be out by the evening", the Election Commission's spokesperson, Nawaraj Dhakal, told ANI in an interview.

The Rastriya Janata Party- Nepal and the Federal Socialist Forum- Nepal are expected to vote in favour of Bhandari, who also set the record as the first female president of Nepal.

As many as 862 votes were cast in the presidential election today at the Federal Parliament Building in New Baneshwor, Kathmandu.

Technically, a total of 334 members of the federal parliament, comprising 275 members of the House of Representatives, 59 of the National Assembly, and 550 members of Provincial Assemblies can vote in Tuesday's election.

Pathak said the UML leaders were also keen for her to continue as the head of state for a full five-year term since her first tenure ended after just two-and-a-half years.

Meanwhile, Chief Justice of the country will administer the oath of office and secrecy to the re-elected President on Wednesday.
