UNMIN Patra #5, Feb/Mar 2008
Abstract:
Campaigning for the CA election is moving into full swing after the signing of key agreements, and in the weeks before the election political parties have a major responsibility to reach out peacefully to people in all districts to explain their election platforms. Creating a free and fair atmosphere for the CA election will depend largely on how the parties fulfill this responsibility. Even as complex political negotiations between the Government and the United Democratic Madhesi Front and the Federal Republican National Front respectively went on in the capital during February, and amidst the Terai bandh, the Election Commission successfully completed key activities across the country in preparation for the election. These included the recruitment and deployment of Returning Officers to all 240 constituencies; refresher training to some 9,000 voter education volunteers and the re activation of the voter education campaign in all villages; the training and deployment of the EC’s monitoring committees and the successful processes of receiving party lists and candidate nominations. So the stage is set both politically and technically for the 10 April election. UNMIN and the United Nations system in Nepal, especially the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, will continue to play its supportive role to assist with the election. It is hoped that UNMIN’s presence in all districts will help to instill confidence in the community, and will assist in improving the climate for the election. Helping to create a free and fair atmosphere for the election is a key role for both UNMIN’s civil affairs officers and OHCHR-Nepal’s human rights monitors.

So the stage is set both politically and technically for the 10 April election. UNMIN and the United Nations system in Nepal, especially the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, will continue to play its supportive role to assist with the election. “UNMIN has responded to the request of the Election Commission by bringing back its District Electoral Advisers,” says Fida Nasrallah, UNMIN’s Chief Electoral Adviser, “and mid March advisers will be deployed in all districts to support the EC’s District Electoral Officers.” It is hoped that UNMIN’s presence in all districts will help to instil confidence in the community, and will assist in improving the climate for the election. Helping to create a free and fair atmosphere for the election is a key role for both UNMIN’s civil affairs officers and OHCHR-Nepal’s human rights monitors. “A major focus of civil affairs officers who visit the districts is to encourage respect for the role that Nepali civil society has to play in helping to create a free and fair atmosphere, which will be conducive to conducting a credible election. Active civil society monitoring of the election climate is very important in creating a free and fair atmosphere,” says Arjuna Parakruma, head of UNMIN’s civil affairs team. OHCHR-Nepal has offices in all five regions, and human rights monitors regularly travel to districts. “OHCHR teams will monitor respect for democratic rights such as freedom of assembly and freedom of expression,” says Alessandro Righetti, senior human rights officer with OHCHR-Nepal, who focuses on election-related rights. “This includes respect for the right of all parties to peacefully campaign in all parts of the country. It also means, for example, not intimidating journalists who are reporting on the election.” UNMIN and OHCHR-Nepal will coordinate in the regions to ensure the maximum effect of monitoring activities across the districts. But the prime responsibility in the weeks ahead is in the hands of Nepal’s political parties.
