US calls for free, fair and transparent polls in Nepal

The United States has urged all the stakeholders to create necessary conditions to ensure that the people of Provinces 1, 5, and 7 are given the opportunity to peacefully exercise their democratic right to elect local representatives during the second phase of local elections scheduled for June 28.
"We call on all parties to mutually respect the freedom of nonviolent expression and assembly, and individual voters’ rights as laid down in Nepal’s laws and constitution," reads a statement issued by the US Embassy in Kathmandu today.
"We also call on the security forces to exercise restraint and comply with existing national and international standards while discharging their duties,” the note adds.
Meanwhile, the United States has also expressed its commitment to working with all stakeholders for a peaceful, inclusive, broadly-supported, and credible election process.
Elections are citizens’ right to express their political will in line with the laws and constitution of Nepal and Article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Likewise, the United Kingdom has also reiterated its commitment to work for a peaceful, inclusive, broadly-supported, and credible election process in Nepal.
Both the countries have urged all Nepali stakeholders to work to create necessary conditions to ensure that the people of Provinces 1, 5, and 7 are given the opportunity to peacefully exercise their democratic right to elect local representation during the second phase of local elections scheduled for June 28.
In a statement issued by British Embassy in Kathmandu, the UK has urged all parties to continue to work to create the conditions for peaceful, inclusive, broadly-supported and credible local elections in Province 2 to complete the local election process.  "We urge the security forces to exercise restraint and comply with existing national international standards when carrying out their duties," reads the statement.
