UNMIN Election Report No 1, 22 March 2008
Abstract:
Nepal is today better positioned than at any time since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in November 2006 to hold a credible Constituent Assembly election, a critical milestone in the peace process. Significant political hurdles that had seriously threatened to derail the process have been overcome, although not entirely removed. The signing of the 28 February agreement between the Interim Government and the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) and the 1 March agreement with the Federal Republican National Front (FRNF) significantly transformed the electoral climate. This report has been prepared by the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN), in conjunction with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Nepal. The United Nations was requested to assist in creating a free and fair atmosphere for the election of a Constituent Assembly, including through UNMIN’s monitoring of the ceasefire and the management of arms and armies and OHCHR’s human rights monitoring.

Nomination of candidates has been completed and the code of conduct has come into effect. Political parties are campaigning, and the entire country is now in an election mode. This is no small achievement. Nevertheless, this positive movement toward an election has brought new challenges and difficulties, which need to be addressed promptly. These include violence by groups opposed to the election, serious violations of the electoral code of conduct and of human rights, and the need to maintain full respect of obligations regarding arms and armies.
