Political parties must not interfere in poll observation works: Experts
The Civil Society members have stressed that there should be no interference from political parties while observing polls.
Addressing a program which focused on how the poll observation tasks can be made professional, they said challenges could be created mainly by the political parties and their cadres who want to turn the election results in their favour.
"There may be the use of muscle, money and manipulation, which the poll observers have to be cautious about," they emphasized.
"Observers may have to brave the activities of poll-opposing groups, for which they have to be mentally prepared," said Gauri Pradhan, member of National Human Rights Commission.
Former chief election commissioner Bhojraj Pokhrel and other experts also expressed their opinions on the occasion. Nepalnews.com
