Legal Framework

The Interim Constitution of 2007 defined the basis of the electoral law in Nepal. The 2015 constitution contains the same basic structure as its prototype. The law is further supplemented by a number of directives, codes of conducts, rules and regulations issued by the Election Commission of Nepal (ECN). These legal provisions collectively define the electoral legal framework. This framework defines all major aspects of the election process; providing for the freedom of association, right to assembly, expression and movement that would create a fair and democratic election [1].
