Violations of Freedom of Expression and Opinion during First Round of Level Election in Nepal

This report is prepared by Freedom Forum Nepal during the first round of local level election, June 2017 in Nepal. FF kept on monitoring FoE during election since it largely manifests the citizen's freedom of expression through ballots. So, any activity creating the atmosphere unfavourable to elections obviously is associated to the violation of freedom of expression.

Annual Media Report 2016

Freedom Forum observed relatively peaceful atmosphere for media this year (2016) with significant decline on number of press freedom violations. FF recorded only 25 incidents of press freedom violations during 2016 against 83 of 2015. With 25 incidents of violations, nearly 75 media persons were affected. Despite having much awaited constitution in place, political stability was threatened especially due to political parties' differences over provincial demarcation, which undoubtedly kept media under fear of intimidations.
