Deuba (77) secured 25,534 votes against his nearest rival Sagar Dhakal (31), an independent candidate who received 1,302 votes. Deuba has never lost any parliamentary election in his five decades of political career.

Dhakal is a young engineer, who had a verbal squabble with Deuba during a public debate at a BBC's Sajha Sawal programme five years ago, after which he decided to challenge Deuba saying that now youths should get chance in politics and senior people like Deuba should get rest.
