In what could tantamount to a blatant attempt at flouting electoral laws the Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) has ordered its members and government employees, who have been transferred, to cast votes in advance from August 21 in Falam constituency, Chin state western Burma.
“It is only meant for USDP members. They want to gauge how many votes they have,” said a member of the township commission.
However, there is no certainty whether these votes will be officially accepted on 7 November, the day of the election.
