Appointed directly by the Secretary-General, members of the EEMT are responsible for assessing the electoral process on a regular basis in order to determine whether it is proceeding in a manner which will lead to a result that accurately reflects the will of the Nepalese people. In making its assessments, the EEMT will meet with a range of stakeholders, including Government, members of the Interim Legislature-Parliament, political parties, civil society organisations, and national and international electoral observer groups.
The EEMT reports to the Secretary-General on the conduct of the election. The Secretary-General will share reports of the EEMT with the Government of Nepal.
The EEMT is not a part of UNMIN. It operates separately from the UNMIN Electoral Assistance Office, which provides technical assistance to the Election Commission.
