PDF File Size: 54 KB | Download   
The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour
congratulated the people of Nepal on Thursday’s elections for a Constituent
Assembly, which she described as a crucial advance in the country’s historic
transition, and one that should have a very positive long-term impact on the human rights of its citizens. “Elections for a Constituent Assembly that will be responsible for drafting a new constitution are a major stride towards a new future in Nepal in which the rights of all people – including historically marginalized communities – are respected,” Arbour said. The High Commissioner particularly welcomed the reportedly large and enthusiastic participation of women in the election.
