Suu Kyi de Myanmar enfrenta nuevos cargos de fraude electoral
November 16, 2021 - La comisión electoral estatal de Myanmar ha anunciado que sigue proceso contra la líder depuesta de la nación, Aung San Suu Kyi, y otras 15 figuras políticas de alto nivel por presunto fraude en la elección general de noviembre pasado.
Allegations of widespread electoral fraud were the main reason cited by the military for its Feb. 1 seizure of power that toppled Suu Kyi’s government. Her National League for Democracy party was about to begin a second five-year term in office after its landslide victory in the polls. The army-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party suffered unexpectedly heavy losses.
Independent observers, such as the Asian Network for Free Elections, found no evidence of substantive irregularities in the polls, though they criticised some aspects.
The action by the Union Election Commission could potentially result in Suu Kyi’s party being dissolved and unable to participate in a new election the military has promised will take place within two years of its takeover.
