Election committee release warning

1.02.2012

Pakuku_tript_thumb_medium200_150Last Tuesday, the Union Election Committee revealed the rule which limits the scope of up-coming election candidates in their campaigns and which must be acceded to, by publishing it in the Government newspaper.

In their publication, they highlight the compliance of the 2010 August committee notification No.91/2010 which states, amongst a number of points, that candidates cannot give speeches that, “criticise the constitution, tarnish the image of the state or the military, or harm security”.

If an election representative wishes to deliver a speech for their campaign, they must submit it to the election committee seven days in advance to ensure it is deemed politically correct. In addition they have to deliver the speech within a set context as outlined below.

In notification 91/2010, candidates have to submit an estimation of the number of people who will attend the canvassing rally in advance. If the rally is intended to take place in a building, hall or grounds organisers must not exceed the holding capacity of the venue, and must also take responsibility to ensure there is no public assembled outside.

 

The committee also specified that once the speeches are over the crowd should not remain in a line or row and shout slogans. A sound box can only be amplified enough for the crowd within the hall or grounds to hear the speeches, and should not be loud enough to disturb the surrounding area and make passing cars or buses stop.

PaO joining the ceasefire bandwagon “because of the Lady”

MONDAY, 06 FEBRUARY 2012 15:48 S.H.A.N.
The PaO National Liberation Organization (PNLO) delegation that met U Aung Min, the presidential negotiator, yesterday on the border of Chiangmai, says democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi’s decision to work with the new government headed by U Thein Sein had led the way for the group to join the peace process.

“We had followed her when she was struggling against the regime’s predecessor,” said Khun Thurein, deputy leader of the PNLO delegation. “Now we fear if we continue to fight against Naypyitaw, it would be like opposing her.”

The PNLO was formed in 2007 after a faction of the PaO dominant Shan Nationalities Peoples Liberation Organization (SNPLO), a ceasefire group, had joined the PaO People’s Liberation Organization (PPLO), a non-ceasefire group, led by Hkun Okker. The SNPLO’s late leader Tarkeley had often referred to Aung San Suu Kyi as A-May (Mother). Continue reading “PaO joining the ceasefire bandwagon “because of the Lady””
