Press Release: UNMIN welcomes announcement of Constituent Assembly election date (25 June 2007)
Abstract:
UNMIN welcomes the announcement of a date for the Constituent Assembly election in Nepal, on 22 November this year. This is a critical step in the peace process, and indicates the strong commitment of the political parties to work together to fulfill the historic promise to the people of Nepal to form a democratically elected Constituent Assembly. UNMIN’s presence in Nepal and all aspects of its work are for the purpose of assisting in creating a free and fair atmosphere for this election, and UNMIN is strongly committed to the achievement of this objective. Now that a date has been set for the election, it is essential that all parties commit themselves to addressing the considerable challenges that remain in order to create a free and fair atmosphere for the ballot. A date is necessary, but not in itself sufficient. The parties must now put forward a realistic plan and timetable to achieve rapid progress on simultaneous fronts, both technical and logistical as well as on political and security issues. Following the passage of legislation establishing the electoral system, and now the extension of 21 days for the Electoral Constituencies Delimitation Commission to review its report, it is vital that the Interim Government continue to engage in real dialogue with historically marginalised groups - Madhesis, Janajatis, Dalits and women and others. This dialogue is essential to ensure that there is a broad consensus among all elements of the electorate on the electoral system.
