KATHMANDU: The Carter Center has launched an international election observation mission for upcoming elections of the Constituent Assembly (CA) slated for November 19 at the invitation of government, political parties and the Election Commission.
“The Center deployed this week 12 long-term observers across Nepal, placing teams in the five development regions and a roaming team in the Terai region, to gain firsthand knowledge of the activities of the election commission, political parties, civil society organizations, and the international community, as well as other citizen and international election observation missions,” reads a statement issued by the center on Thursday.
“The Carter Center hopes that this election observation mission will reassure the Nepali people that their efforts to draft a new constitution can succeed. Competitive and peaceful elections for a new constituent assembly are the best chance for Nepal to get back on the path to democracy and development,” the statement quoted its Democracy Program Associate Director David Pottie as saying.
According to the statement, these 12 observers, representing eight countries, will be joined by an additional 40 short-term observers shortly before the elections. The Center will also release periodic public statements on electoral findings.
The Center had also observed 2008 CA elections and has remained present conducting long-term political and constitutional monitoring to June 2013.
