Myanmar’s Election Commission Meets Political Parties On Election Findings

Myanmar’s Union Election Commission, held talks yesterday, with political parties, on findings related to voting irregularities in the 2020 general elections.

The commission conducted investigations in 306 out of 315 townships across the country so far, and fraud was found to have been committed, said new Chairman, U Thein Soe, of the commission, at the meeting where 59 political parties were in attendance.

“Systematic decision is needed to be made on whether to dissolve the National League for Democracy (NLD), that intentionally committed election fraud, or to take actions against it, for betraying the country,” the chairman said.

At present, President U Win Myint is facing two court charges, while six cases have been filed against State Counsellor, Aung San Suu Kyi.

The military alleged that, there was massive voting fraud in the country’s Nov, 2020 general elections, which saw the NLD win a majority of seats in both houses of parliament.

Earlier in Feb, the State Administration Council reformed the Union Election Commission, taking steps to review the process of the general elections.

The state power was transferred to Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services, Sen-Gen Min Aung Hlaing, after the declaration of a state of emergency in the country on Feb 1.
