The Burma ruling party, headed by Aung San Suu Lyi, has arrogated the victoria in the elections held on Sunday by announcing that he has won enough seats in Parliament to form the next government. However, the electoral board has not yet ruled on the results of the country’s second general elections since the end of the military regime.
Party spokesman Myo Nyunt told Reuters that internal reports They showed that the National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Aung San Suu Kyi, had won the necessary 322 seats in Parliament without a pronouncement from the electoral board.
The burmese have been able to choose between 93 parties and, although the official results will take several days to be known, few have doubts that, as in the 2015 elections, the winner will be the National League for Democracy (LND), headed by the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi.
To their 75 years Suu Kyi, had already voted on October 29, as well as many over sixty years old who were given the opportunity to give their early vote to avoid contagion of the coronavirus.
Suu Kyi governs with the position of Councilor of State, expressly designed to circumvent an article of the Constitution – approved in 2008 by the uniformed men – that prohibits the presidency from those who have immediate foreign relatives, which is their case, since their two children have British nationality.
The great excluded
The great excluded from these elections have been the murmur, who were for the most part taken away citizenship by the government in the early 1990s and subjected to a regime of discrimination for decades as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh, despite having lived in the country for generations.
The murmur, predominantly Muslims in a country with a Buddhist majority, could no longer vote in the 2015 elections, and this time they will not be able to do so either, while the authorities rejected the candidacies of five of them, members of the Party for Democracy and Human Rights (PDDH).
“The exclusion of murmur in elections it is clear evidence of discrimination, suppression and apartheid. Therefore, it is not possible to recognize the elections in Burma as free, fair, inclusive and credible, “denounced the PDDH in a statement issued during election day.
