UEC says Nov 8 election result is final

The Union Election Commission (UEC) will accept the results of the 2020 Myanmar election held on November 8 as final and there will not be an election re-run, said U Myint Naing from the UEC.

“The recent election met five standards. Other big parties which contested in the election had already approved the result. We’ll continue with this election result,” he said during the press conference on November 11.

The opposition Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) had refused to accept the election outcome and demanded on November 11 that the election commission hold a re-run of the election with the military’s cooperation.

U Myint Naing added that accusations that the USDP brought against the poll body are unfounded, and issues which arose during the election period had been resolved.

“Only a few people accused the election of being unfair. But basically, democracy focuses on the voice of the majority of people. Some people might think the election was unfair, but they don’t have any evidence to prove it unfair. There were minor flaws in the electoral procedures, but the commission has specifically announced them in order to correct them in future elections,” he said.

The UEC will announce all the election results within a week of the election. In the meantime, the commission is announcing the confirmed numbers. Those who are crying foul can submit complaints if they found any unfairness during the election period, he added.
