2022 May 10, 19:31, Kathmandu

Except for legal and practical complexities, the election process is found gradually improving in the Local Level Election, 2022, as compared to past elections.

An observation carried out by the General Election Observation Committee (GEOC) Nepal prior to the local level election has found that the candidacy registration was done peacefully barring some sporadic incidents.

GEOC has carried out the pre-election observation in 200 local units of 30 districts through 400 representatives. The Pre-election Observation Report, containing the entire situation from the registration of the political parties and the candidacy registration process till a day before the start of the election silence period, has been made public today.

The report states that the political parties, candidates and even voters are becoming mature, the parties and candidates involved in election canvassing in a peaceful manner barring one or two places, and the parties and the candidates are not found using force against each other.

GEOC stated that the voters have felt a sense of security as the political party cadres have been calm during the election campaigning. It said the political party cadres did not have any bitterness, ill-will and dislike amongst each other and they were found to be more calm and peaceful during the campaigning as compared to the past.

However, intra-party clashes were reported at some places on the day of registering candidacy due to the dissatisfaction in the selection of candidates by the respective parties.
