Press Statement: Ian Martin Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (10 October 2007)
Abstract:
The commitment to the election of a Constituent Assembly was agreed upon as a key element in the peace process, and I believe that the current crisis has come about not just because of failure to reach agreement on two issues, but as a reflection of deeper differences in perception and approach, and as a result of weaknesses in the overall management of the peace process, particularly the failure to implement agreements on certain key issues. The lack of progress within the Government in discussing the future of Maoist combatants, ensuring adequate conditions in the cantonments, and commencing serious discussions on security sector reform, have all contributed to Maoist concerns that the Government is not fulfilling its commitments. And the reluctance of the CPN-M to ensure that its Young Communist League ends its use of intimidation and sometimes violence has badly eroded public confidence that the Maoists are indeed willing to enter a genuinely democratic process. Meanwhile, many of Nepal’s traditionally marginalized groups remain concerned that commitments made to them are not being fulfilled. There is frustration by all communities in the Terai, and indeed across Nepal, about the poor state of public security I condemn the assassination of a VDC secretary in Bara district yesterday and without greater cooperation among the parties and civil society at the local level the risk of communal tension and violence remains considerable. #Election #PeaceProcess #HumanRights
