LONDON: Myanmar’s junta-appointed election commission will dissolve Aung San Suu Kyi’s political party for vote fraud in a November poll, local media reported on Friday. News websites said the announcement was made at a meeting with political parties that was boycotted by many, including Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy.
The army seized power accusing the NLD of obtaining victory through a manipulated vote, though the electoral commission at that time had rejected its complaints. The NLD had committed fraud “so we will have to dissolve the party’s registration”, the chairman of Union Election Commission Thein Soe was cited as saying. The National Unity Government, an alliance of democracy groups, said it was a ploy to cling to power.
