This Mizzima News video documents the lack of voter education in ethnic areas even in early November, merely days before the elections. The reporter asked local Amm ethnic vilalgers who they would vote for the coming election, who simply replied “We didn’t know anything about this yet”.
The video notes how local ethnic villagers were given party leaflets in Burmese, which the villagers could not read. Further, their village leader failed to explain the elections to the people.
