Chief of United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) Ian Martin has said all Nepali political parties should respect the electoral Code of Conduct, The Kathmandu Post reported on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press meeting in Biratnagar in eastern Nepal on Monday, he said, "the parties must respect the right of other parties to campaign freely in any district, any village that they wish to do so in the country."

Stating that the April 10 Constituent Assembly election in Nepal will be most closely observed, he said, "I would remind everyone that this will be the most closely observed election that I think there has ever been in Nepal, with more than 700 international observers as well as thousands of national observers."

On the issue of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist)'s People's Liberation Army (PLA) leaving cantonments, he said he held a talk with Maoist Chairman Prachanda regarding the issue.

"He gave me an assurance that there would be no more such incidents. He also confirmed that at my urging he had instructed his commanders that no more leave was to be granted to members of the PLA and that those already on leave were ordered to return to the cantonments. And he assured me of cooperation with the head counts that UNMIN's arms monitors are now conducting at cantonments."
