ANFREL Pre-Election Assessment Mission Report: 2022 Nepali House of Representatives and Provincial Assemblies Elections
The Asian Network for Free Elections (ANFREL) published on 28 September 2022 the report of its pre-election assessment mission to the 2022 Nepali House of Representatives and Provincial Assemblies Elections.
As Nepal is scheduled to hold general elections on 20 November 2022, ANFREL presented the pre-election environment and challenges in the country, together with recommendations based on regional standards and best practices for elections. ANFREL hoped that this resource may be useful to enhance democracy in Nepal.
ANFREL deployed three international experts who spent two weeks in Nepal, talking with dozens of different election stakeholders, including Election Commission and other public officials, political parties, civil society organizations, media, academics, and others.
ANFREL executive director Chandanie Watawala wished to thank the Election Commission of Nepal and its chairperson Hon. Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya for granting accreditation for ANFREL to observe the general elections, and The Asia Foundation for their kind partnership making this pre-election assessment possible.ANFREL_Nepal-PEAM_28-Sept-2022
