‘No polls until ethnic groups join peace process’

THE State Administration Council Chairman and Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing met Taninthayi Region government officials and town elders in Dawei on Friday and said elections cannot be convened without peace and a free and fair vote can only be held when armed ethnic organisations join the peace process according to the rule of law.

In the 2008 Constitution, it has been prescribed clearly for the right of each citizen.

Therefore, 2022 is set for achieving peace in the entire nation and striving for the participation of NCA non-signatories to participate in the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement, he added.

The Senior General said that the Tatmadaw has not seized State power and it serves the duties under the Constitution (2008) as part of maintaining the strengthening of multiparty democracy in the country.

The Union Election Commission was reconstituted in line with the five-point roadmap to inspect voter lists and other tasks under the law. — Eleven Media Group/ANN
