Burma will allow election observers


Burma has agreed to allow observers from South-East Asian countries to monitor April elections that are viewed as crucial for gauging the nation’s much-heralded reforms, a regional bloc says.

Allowing outside monitors is a major step for the long-isolated country, which rejected international bids to observe its last two elections, in 2010 and 1990.

Burma’s decision was announced by the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
