1991 Nepalese Elections: A Pre-Election Survey Addendum (January 1991)


The pre-election assessment team of the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) that visited Nepal October 24 - November 3, 1990, identified international observers and citizen education efforts as appropriate foci for US assistance to the Nepali election process. The recommendations are included in the IFES report "The 1991 Nepalese Elections; A Pre-Election survey."

This addendum to the earlier report develops specific scenarios for an international observer delegation and citizen education efforts. While the specifics of any plan are contingent upon unfolding developments on the ground, these options present an overall framework within which to implement election assistance programs.

Contained in this addendum are considerations for an international observer delegation, a citizen education effort, and a mixed observer--citizen education plan. Actual options may range within any mix of these programs while keeping in mind budget constraints.
