Final UN Report Before Historic Polls In Nepal Warns Of Violence, Intimidation
PDF File Size: 32 KB | Download   
Momentum continues to build ahead of this Thursday's historic Constituent Assembly elections in Nepal, but violent clashes and acts of intimidation involving supporters of political parties are marring the campaigning, the United Nations says today in its final assessment ahead of the polls. The joint report by the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR-Nepal) finds that while campaigning has been peaceful in many constituencies, in others there have been incidents – frequent, in some cases – of election related violence and intimidation. “The Young Communist League and other Maoist cadres continued to be involved in the largest proportion of these incidents,” the report notes, urging the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) to stop the intimidatory behaviour of its members and supporters. “The CPN-M leadership should ensure that its stated readiness to abide by the outcome of the election authenticated through the established procedures is not undermined by contradictory statement,” the report recommended. It stated that while the number of abductions by armed groups had fallen slightly, there had been a considerable increase in the detonation of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in acts clearly intended to disrupt the electoral process.
