Mr Maruyama Ichiro, Ambassador of Japan signed and exchanged Notes with Ms Dawn Del Rio, Officer-In-Charge/ Deputy Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Myanmar, regarding Japan’s grant aid for Electoral Assistance with a maximum provision of 181 million Japanese Yen. With Myanmar’s third General Election under the current constitution scheduled for November this year, holding a fair and transparent election is an important step toward the consolidation of democracy in Myanmar.
Under these circumstances, this assistance will provide indelible ink to all polling stations across Myanmar to prevent double-voting for all voters in cooperation with UNDP, thereby contributing to holding a fair and transparent election. This is the second time that the Government of Japan has assisted the conduct of Elections in Myanmar, following the assistance of necessary items and the deployment of Election Observation Team in the previous General Election in 2015. — GNLM
