NLD to consider boycotting election
The National League for Democracy (NLD) cannot guarantee that it will not boycott the upcoming election, said NLD chairperson Aung San Suu Kyi at a press briefing held at the parliament building in Nay Pyi Taw.

The National League for Democracy (NLD) cannot guarantee that it will not boycott the upcoming election, said NLD chairperson Aung San Suu Kyi at a press briefing held at the parliament building in Nay Pyi Taw.

“I cannot say whether we will boycott the election or not. In politics, you can’t make predictions. It will depend on the situation. We cannot predict what will happen next. We are not closing off any options, and we have to calculate every possibility,” Suu Kyi said.

The NLD leader continued that the achievement of holding the election is crucial to all levels of Myanmar government, including the election commission, the cabinet and parliament, in addition to the army and the media.

She also told reporters that she has not ruled out the possibility of her party being abolished.

She said the government should not consider delaying the election using the pretext of the peace process.
