EC rejects EU election observation report
KATHMANDU: The Election Commission has rejected the report issued by the European Union on its observation of the recently held House of Representatives and Provincial Assembly elections in Nepal.
“The EU report and its press statement are misleading, baseless and against the international election observation code of conduct, and hence the EC rejects it completely,” reads a statement issued by the EC here today. The Commission has also said that the report submitted by the EC was a serious violation of the memorandum of understanding it reached with the Commission on last October 24, including of the point no. 12 of the election observation code of conduct attached to the MoU.
In regards to the observation of elections and reporting by crossing the limits of observation, the EC has decided to become more stringent in issuing permission to election observation agencies.
