Weak management of peace process responsible for Nepal crisis: MartinNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:00 am ICT by admin
He further said the reluctance of the Maoist party to ensure that its youth wing Young Communist League (YCL) ends its use of intimidation and sometimes violence has badly eroded public confidence that the Maoists are indeed willing to enter a genuinely democratic process.
“Many of Nepal’s traditionally marginalised groups remain concerned that commitments made to them are not being fulfilled. There is frustration by all communities in the Terai, and indeed across Nepal, about the poor state of public security,” nepalnews quoted Martin, as saying.
He condemned the assassination of a VDC secretary in Bara district on Tuesday and mentioned that without greater cooperation among the parties and civil society at the local level, the risk of communal tension and violence remains considerable.
He stressed that this is a moment when the political parties, civil society, and indeed all Nepalis should not just consider a new election date, but should focus on sustaining and deepening the peace process as a whole and develop a road-map of measures that are necessary to create the conditions for a credible election.
He said this requires dialogue not only among the seven parties but with marginalized groups, civil society and all democratic forces; cooperation at the local level to establishment effective governance and public security; addressing the future of Maoist combatants and the security sector; more effective implementation machinery operating by consensus; a renewed commitment by all to non-violent and democratic political activity; and independent monitoring of all peace process commitments.
Martin said the UN agencies in Nepal will play the roles that are asked of it. (ANI)
