An appeal Letter to the Norwegian Government to Condemn the Government of Nepal for Preventing and Abusing the Tibetans in Exile to Exercise the Right to Vote

3rd October was the day for all the Tibetans in exile all over the world to exercise their right to vote. All the Tibetans in exile around the world went to cast their ballots to nominate candidates for the post of Tibetan Prime Minister and the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile.

Tibetans in Norway were so excited and delighted to exercise this greatest of human rights 3 October at the Human Rights House. 76% of the Tibetans living in Norway cast their vote and the whole process were put into reality based on the poll system of Norway when we go to vote for the parliament and commune election.

While the Tibetans were practicing this most democratic action in Norway peacefully, our other Tibetan fellow people in Nepal were being violated by the Nepali Police. Nepalese police arrived in full riot gear at the three polling booths in Kathmandu, the region’s capital, and ransacked the polling booths. The police took away ballot boxes an hour before the voting was to complete.

This is an abuse of human rights and violation of the right to vote in the free world.

The undersigned NGOs therefore urge the Norwegian Government to condemn the Government of Nepal who exercised such action, abuse and violation against the Tibetan people living in Nepal.
