Poll body in Myanmar rejects allegations of fraud in elections levied by the army

The Union Election Commission (UEC) in Myanmar has rejected the allegations of fraud in elections levied by the army.

“In this election, weaknesses and errors in voters’ lists cannot cause voting fraud,” the commission said in a six-page statement on its Facebook page, adding voting was conducted transparently before election observers.

the UEC said there is no evidence of “voting malpractice” or people voting more than once, as the military claimed.

The UEC said underage people and the deceased could have been added to voter lists but COVID-19 travel restrictions would have stopped people from traveling easily to numerous polling stations.
