The Carter Center has maintained a team of observers in Nepal since 2007, and established the current election observation mission on Sept. 25, 2013, following written invitations of the Election Commission of Nepal and Chairman of the Council of Ministers Khil Raj Regmi. In preparation for the Nov. 19, 2013, constituent assembly elections, 66 Carter Center observers were deployed throughout Nepal in a delegation co-led by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand Dr. Surakiart Sathirathai.
