Congratulating the people of Nepal for successful Constituent Assembly polls, the US has said that Washington is looking forward to the formation of the Assembly reflecting the will of the people.
"We congratulate the people of Nepal on their historic Constituent Assembly election on April 10. Although there was considerable violence and intimidation during the pre-election period, and some instances of voting irregularities on election day, Nepali voters were able to cast their ballots peacefully in most districts," State Department Spokesman Sean McCormack said in a Statement.
"Over the next days and weeks, as complete results of these polls become known, the United States urges patience and nonviolent observance of the democratic process. We look forward to the formation of an assembly that reflects the will of the Nepali people, ready to begin the important work of framing a constitution that addresses their needs," he added.
