Union Election Commission (UEC) is holding elections under the five norms of free, fair, transparent, credible and reflecting the will of the people, said UEC Chairman U Hla Thein.
UEC Chairman said this during a meeting with all levels of Sagaing Region election sub-commissions chairmen and secretaries in Monywa town hall, Monywa, Sagaing Region, on the morning of 22 September.
In order to meet these norms, not only the UEC but all levels of election sub-commissions need to do their duties and responsibilities. Election works could not be done alone by election commission but relevant ministries, political parties, civil society organisations, media and voters need to participate together in it.
Thanks are offered to respectable and trusted persons who participated in the election works as volunteers, as they are doing the national duty for the country. When election sub-commissions conduct the election works, most are new members, and so they are required to follow the election law, rules, work procedures and guidelines without corruption and bias in order for the election to reflect the will of the people.
It is also important to conduct the advance voting, voting at the poll stations, counting of the votes and announcing the results in a transparent and a timely manner. Sub-commissions that hold by-elections will have to conduct the by-election successfully and sub-commissions that do not hold by-elections are to make preparations for the 2020 General Election, said the UEC Chairman.
Next, Sagaing Region election officer U Aung Myo Lwin explained about election work processes being conducted.
Afterwards, UEC Chairman reiterated for sub-commissions that will hold by-election to conduct the by-election successfully, and sub-commissions that do not hold by-election to assist as necessary. He also spoke of studying law, rules and work guidelines in advance for the 2020 General Election to fully understand it. — MNA
