CEC Yadav expects neutrality, impartiality from election observers

Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Dr Ayodhee Prasad Yadav

Kathmandu, Nov 10 (RSS): Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Dr Ayodhee Prasad Yadav has suggested election observers to maintain neutrality and impartiality in course of work so that their presence would make the duties of polling officers easier.

Inaugurating an orientation programme organised at the Election Commission (EC) targeting chiefs and representatives of national organisations permitted for observing the elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies here today, he urged them to carry out their work in a free, fair and impartial way and with a very positive feeling. “I request election observers to strictly adhere to the election code of conduct so that none can get a chance to complain regarding their presence in the assigned field,” he said.

People’s aspirations for peace, democracy and prosperity would come true provided that elections become successful and the EC had expected that election observers’ role would be significant in holding the elections in free and fair atmosphere.

The EC has given permission to over 4,400 people from 52 organisations at home to observe the upcoming twin elections scheduled to be held on November 26 and December 7 in two phases. Four international organisations have been also allowed to observe the elections. And in today’s orientation , chiefs and representatives from 27 organisations were present.
