Minister for Home Affairs Madhav Prasad Ghimire said the government has made tight security arrangements to hold free and fair Constituent Assembly (CA) elections scheduled for 19 November.

Speaking at a regional seminar on security in Biratnagar on Thursday, Home Minister Ghimire said the government would not let those attempting to foil the election and obstructing the election process walk free.

“The government is ready to face any shorts of challenges to ensure a peaceful election,” he said, adding that a reliable ground has been created for fair election.

Nepali people and the political parties are in favour of the election, he said and urged the parties which have decided not to participate in the election, not to carry out any activities that disturb the election process.

“People’s supremacy will be established through the election,” he added.

Hhief district officers from all 16 districts in the eastern region, chiefs of Armed Police Force, Nepal Police and National Investigation Department and Nepal Army representatives attended the day-long seminar.

Over the next weeks the observers will meet election officials, candidates and representatives of civil society, and will report their observations back to Kathmandu.

Before the election, a group of 40 short-term observers together with a delegation of members of the European Parliament and locally-recruited short term observers from EU member state embassies will be joining the mission in order to observe voting, counting and tabulation of results.
