KATHMANDU — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has strongly objected the recent election report of the European Union Election Observation Mission (EUEOM).
Speaking at a programme organised to present the National Election Observation Committee’s Final Report of the Observation Mission here in the Capital on Sunday, PM oli said, “I believe the EU will revise the contents of its report.
“I, as a Prime Minister of a sovereign country, say that the report must be revised,” Oli further said,” The report of EUEOM on the recently concluded elections of the House of Representatives and Provincial Assemblies have undermined Nepal and Nepali people.”
PM Oli stressed that no one has the right to demolish the Nepalese Citizen.
“The EU is seeking vengeance through this report as we have deported many who came to Nepal in the name of observation when they actually were converting people to Christianity,” PM Oli said.
The EUEOM in its report, had claimed that representation of the well-represented group Khas-Arya arguably contravened international standards of equality, as affirmative measures are foreseen only as a means to promote equality.
It also said Christians were not considered for inclusion, despite comprising 1.4 percent of the country’s population.
“This contravenes international standards on equality. Affirmative action measures should not be used to justify a system which has the impact of aggravating ethnic and gender inequality,” it stated.
Issuing a press statement on Wednesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had also objected on the report.
