During October, election campaign moved into full swing across the country. Unlike during the previous election in 2008, when parties mounted many large rallies, the emphasis this time has been more on personal contact with voters through village-by-village and door-to-door canvassing. There have been incidents of election related violence across the country, ranging from minor scuffles to acts of vandalism to serious assaults—two people have been killed in apparent political violence, one at the beginning of October and another at the beginning of November. Concerning as the level of political and election related violence is, it is currently much lower than during the 2008 campaign. Some violence involve clashes between participating parties but the majority of cases involve the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-Maoist), which is boycotting and attempting to disrupt the process along with an alliance of 33 other parties. So far the CPN-Maoist has refrained from lethal violence and attempted to avoid confrontation with the security forces, though some members of the party have been arrested for poll obstruction activities. Even in areas where the CPN-Maoist is perceived to be relatively strong, interlocutors of other parties report that they are still able to campaign, indicating that the political space remains open to all for the most part.Many of the CPN-Maoist‟s attacks are directed against the party from which it split in June 2012, the Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (UCPN-M). The CPN-Maoist is expected by many interlocutors to intensify its activities in the final weeks of the election campaign, as election staff and materials are deployed to polling centres across the country—though media reports on 7 November indicated that the 33-party alliance might reduce the length of the all Nepal bandh already planned 11-20 November.
