After continuous rounds of political negotiations during September, the Interim Electoral Council of Ministers(IECM) and High level Political Committee(HLPC) continued onwards in preparing for Constituent Assembly(CA) elections on 19 November without bring on the remaining dissenting political parties. The nomination of election candidates in the first week of October marked the beginning of the final phase of election preparations. With just six weeks to go before polling, the election atmosphere is building and political parties are entering campaign mode. However, dissenting 33party alliance, predominantly led by the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist(CPN-Maoist), has not joined the process and is threatening to disrupt the election with a programme of protests culmination in an all Nepal bandh from 11-20 November. The United Nations has called upon all parties, whether they are participating in the elections or not, to abide by the law and the election Code of Conduct and respect the peaceful democratic rights of others. Despite the upcoming 19 November elections, many districts were considered to be politically quiet during September. This was partially attributed to political parties being busy with internal meetings, finalizing their candidate nominations and engaging in final nomination parleys in Kathmandu. For the most part, mass public elections campaigning had not yet started during September as most parties were busy with internal organisational matters and campaigning is only expected to start in earnest following the announcement and registration of candidates. The 33 party alliance(predominantly led by the CPN-Maoist) continued its anti-poll campaign during September and conducted a series of nation-wide protests against the election process, including bandhs, torch rallies and other mass meetings. The CPN-Maoist and alliance party cadres were reported to have
continued conducting door to door‘ campaigns to dissuade people from participating in the CA elections, particularly in the Far Western, Mid Western and Western regions. During August and September, the CPN-Maoist continued to conduct cadre orientations, form youth squads‘ or task forces‘ and burn copies of the elections code of conduct in the Mid Western and Western regions. The Federal Limbuwan State Council affiliated with the Federal Democratic National Front(FLSC-FDNF) and the Federal Democratic National Front(FDNF)were the main parties undertaking protest programmes in the Eastern and Central Regions,
carrying out pre-announced bandhs and mass assemblies.
