The election commission of Myanmar, appointed by Myanmar’s junta, will dissolve Aung San Suu Kyi’s party- National League for Democracy Party (NLD).
News outlet Myanmar Now, citing a commissioner on May 21, said that the decision was taken during a meeting with political parties that was boycotted by many parties including the NLD.
The Myanmar junta further said that NLD did fraud in a November election.
“The election fraud conducted by the NLD was illegal. So we will have to dissolve the party’s registration,” the chairman of the junta-backed Union Election Commission (UEC), Thein Soe said.
“Those who did that will be considered as traitors and we will take action,” Soe added.
