Myanmar cancels voting in more minority areas
YANGON, Myanmar – Election authorities in military-ruled Myanmar canceled voting in Sunday’s elections in more areas where restive ethnic minorities are dominant.
The Union Election Commission canceled balloting in the Nov. 7 elections in 12 more village tracts in six constituencies in Kayah state “as conditions are not conducive to holding a free and fair election,” according to an official notice seen Tuesday. Each tract comprises several villages.
The announcement in the official gazette gave no further explanation for the action, but exile Myanmar media have reported recent clashes between ethnic Karenni groups and government troops in Kayah state.
The commission in September announced the cancellation of voting in about 300 village tracts in 33 townships where restive ethnic minorities are dominant. The move is believed to have disenfranchised about 1.5 million people in more than 3,400 villages, though official numbers are not available.
The September announcement was the first sign from the government that the country’s first elections in two decades may not go as smoothly as desired, despite the junta’s tight control over their organization and rules. Pro-democracy groups, as well as Western nations and human rights organizations, have already criticized the elections as unfair and undemocratic.
The announcement said the elections had been canceled in several townships in Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Mon and Shan states, including four townships in the Wa self-administered division.
Ethnic groups in those areas, which are mostly along the eastern and northern borders, disagree with the ruling junta over its insistence that they integrate their semiautonomous security forces into the government’s border guard forces.
Many of the groups have sought more autonomy since Myanmar’s independence in 1948, and the government maintains uneasy cease-fires with them.
Myanmar junta says will keep power if voters abstain
YANGON (Reuters) – Myanmar’s military rulers threatened on Monday to cling to power if the public abstained from voting in Sunday’s long-awaited election and blamed foreign media for trying to derail the poll.
The military, which has run the country since a 1962 coup, said 13 foreign news organisations had colluded with opposition movements to discourage people from voting and create “great troubles” for the country.
“If the election is aborted (by voters) there will not be a government that’s elected by vote of the people,” all state-controlled newspapers, which serve as mouthpieces for the reclusive regime, said in a commentary.
“The ruling government would have no choice but to remain in charge of state security until it holds another election. If so, this will take a long time,” they said, adding that Myanmar’s plan to become a democracy took more than a decade to draft.
It was the first time the junta has made such a threat, or mentioned the possibility of a no-vote campaign ahead of the election, which critics say is a sham to cement the military’s iron-fisted grip on power.
In the absence of any real opposition to two big parties backed by the military, activists and analysts say a significant boycott by voters would be the only means of expressing public opposition to the election.
The commentary did not name the foreign news media it accused of trying to sabotage the poll. It said journalists were working closely with organisations that were “no longer political parties,” a veiled reference to the opposition National League for Democracy (NLD), which has boycotted the poll.
“Their intent is nothing more than to get the nation and the people into great troubles,” the commentary said.
The NLD, led by detained Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, won the country’s last election, in 1990, in a landslide, but the generals ignored the result.
The party, which was dissolved because of its boycott of this month’s vote, says this election is “unfair and unjust” because of the detention of Suu Kyi and more than 2,100 other political prisoners, hundreds of which are party members.
Senior NLD member Aung Thein insisted the former party was not trying to disrupt the poll but was seeking only to remind people of their constitutional rights.
“Leaders have been explaining to the people in provinces and big cities that they have the right to boycott the election,” he told Reuters.
“No one has taken action against us. We are just propagating a constitutional right of the people.”
