About

Project Description:

The Project intends to assist the Election Commission of Nepal in meeting evolving and unpredictable challenges in the administration of the CA election, such as: (1) the implementation of complex legal provisions and regulations specifically adopted for a quite exceptional election; (2) responding to a number of evolving needs originating from the implementation of a completely new electoral system; (3) capitalising from important operational and procedural knowledge gained through the conduct of the CA election and retaining such a crucial institutional memory.

 

Development Goal:

  1. Improve crucial organisational and procedural aspects of the electoral process, so that the confidence of the electorate and other electoral stakeholders in the Constituent Assembly election and the overall legitimacy of the elected Assembly will be enhanced.
  2. Conduct a thorough assessment of the CA election process and of related technical assistance to produce recommendations that form the basis of future elections and future technical assistance to be provided to the EC.

Immediate Objective:

  1. Assist the Election Commission of Nepal in effectively and swiftly addressing a number of unforeseen challenges and evolving needs connected to the conduct of the Constituent Assembly election through the rapid identification, recruitment and deployment of highly specialised electoral experts; and
  2. Assist the Election Commission of Nepal in conducting a comprehensive Post-Election Review exercise to identify, analyse and retain crucial lessons learned during the organisation of the CA election that could be effectively applied to the future administration of the electoral process by the EC and to future electoral assistance programmes.
